A partial answer to this question is that one must develope a finite

difference scheme to approximate the laplacian in these coordinates. Some

references that are readily available and may be of partial help.

Abromowitz & Stegun: section 25 around page 877

They seem to think the world is two dimensional*. A reference I just

found this morning may be more to the point: "Fields and Electrodynamics:

A Computer-Compatible Introduction" by Pieter B. Visscher. Chapter 16 is

devoted to this and more. I got this book from a publisher's rep some

time ago. I hadn't really looked at it much before this morning. The book

may be obscure; Amazon shows it as out of print. It was published in 1988

so check you unperused publishers' samples.

*They write Laplace's equation in two dimensions.
