Since the Green's function, as a function of one of its variables, is a potential due

to a unit point charge, this symmetry merely represents the

interchangeability of the source and the observation points. From form (1.40) for

G(x, x') it is ...

The dipole sum rule is a general statement that is true both classically and

quantum mechanically, no matter how complicated the response of the system to

the incident radiation as a function of frequency. It depends only on the two
