Notice that we do not require an infinite number of derivatives — three will suffice:
the partial derivatives along each of the three coordinate directions. Equation
1.34 is reminiscent of a dot product: □G ' 7\T 7\T t\T \ dT = [ —x+ —$+ — z) - (dxx
Figure 1.36 also shows three unit vectors, r, 6, $, pointing in the direction of
increase of the corresponding coordinates. They constitute an orthogonal (
mutually perpendicular) basis set (just like x, y, z), and any vector A can be
expressed in ...
Typically, the direction of A will mimic the direction of the current. For instance,
both were azimuthal in Exs. 5.1 1 and 5.12. Indeed, if all the current flows in one
direction, then Eq. 5.63 suggests that A must point that way too. Thus the
