Concepts inComputer science: through the eyes of potential students
In linguistics, the potential mood The mathematical study of potentials is known as potential theory; it is the study of harmonic functions on manifolds. This mathematical formulation arises from the fact that, in physics, the scalar potential is irrotational, and thus has a vanishing Laplacian ¿ the very definition of a harmonic function. In physics, a potential may refer to the scalar potential or to the vector potential.
