A finite difference approach to the wire junction problem
Abstract
The approach presented is similar to a method used by Tesche (1974) in his treatment of the Pocklingtontype equation arising in the junction problem. A unique criterion is presented for choosing the sampling interval for the finitedifference scheme. A description is given of the finitedifference method used for transforming the integrodifferential equation for the junction problem into a matrix form. The proposed approach has been employed in calculations of current distribution on crossedwire structures.
