electric potential

[i¦lek·trik pə′ten·chəl]
(electricity)
The work which must be done against electric forces to bring a unit charge from a reference point to the point in question; the reference point is located at an infinite distance, or, for practical purposes, at the surface of the earth or some other large conductor. Also known as electrostatic potential; potential. Abbreviated V.

The use of the potentials in the analysis of PeC-scattering problems with Integral Equations is associated with the accomplishment of the Gauge-Lorentz condition, which, prior to discretization, establishes the definition of the electric scalar potential [PHI] in terms of the magnetic vector potential A as
After discretization, the space of current is determined by the expansion in terms of the adopted divergence-Taylor-Orthogonal basis n-th div-TO basis function in the expansion of the electric scalar potential is
