Potential theory is the name given to the broad field of analysis encompassing such topics as harmonic and subharmonic functions, the Dirichlet problem, Green’s functions, potentials and capacity. We wish to gain a deeper understanding of complex dynamics using the tools and techniques of potential theory, and we will restrict ourselves to the iteration of holomorphic polynomials.
