Abstract

The solution to the age-old infinite medium Green's function is revisited using the hindsight of the past coupled with the wisdom of the present. A new solution is found based on a blend of the theories developed by F. Vanmassenhove and C. Grosjean, E. Inonu, K. Case and J. Mika. The solution is obtained from well-known recurrence relations and is shown to reduce to the singular eigenfunction representation of Case. Closure is shown to be a consequence of the infinite medium Green's function.
