comment Solving the 2D Poisson equation with variable boundary location
Wow, Awesome, thanks! Minor correction, you missed a minus sign in $A_1$ i.e. $A_1=\frac{C}{4}\frac{b^2-a^2}{a^2+b^2}$

comment Solving the 2D Poisson equation with variable boundary location
I do see that they indeed use the elliptic coordinates that @rajb245 mentioned so that seems to be the right route

comment Solving the 2D Poisson equation with variable boundary location
@Semiclassical I can access the paper behind the paywall, but to be honest I don't exactly get what I am looking at.

@rajb245 Ah, ok. Didn't know that coordinate system. I'm curious how it goes!

@rajb245 Terrific thanks. Note that the bottom part of my question contains a transformation of (1) to (what I would call) elliptical coordinates. Might save you some work?!

@Semiclassical Yes, that is indeed what I am looking for.

@BeniBogosel Isn't the mixed derivative supposed to have a factor 2?

comment Solving the 2D Poisson equation with variable boundary location
@Dmoreno ok, I think I get it now. Thanks! I actually know roughly what the solution to this problem should look like (because of the physical shape it represents) and I know that there isn't a singularity at $r=0$, but I will work with the mathematically correct formulation you propose!

comment Solving the 2D Poisson equation with variable boundary location
@Dmoreno I will certainly try the other choice of coordinates, indeed that would turn the boundary condition simply into $r=r_0=1$. I'm not sure I completely understand your second point, I can see that $r=0$ is indeed a singular point in the differential equation, but would the boundary condition be something like $\lim_{r\to0}$ $z_r\to0$ (sorry about the notation, don't quite know how to write that) ?

comment Are there any surfaces that contain both positive and negative Gaussian curvature?
Could you clarify what you mean with k1 and k2?! --- And just to clarify my own wording: with inside I mean at the side of the torus inside the hole, I do not mean actually inside the 'tube' of the torus

comment What is this semicircle-like shape called?
@Semiclassical cutting the major axis of the stadium would result in what is often called an extended or elongated semicircle, so perhaps semi-stadium is not that bad?!
