Abstract:

The problem of finding a magnetostatic field below a plane in the absence of currents is reduced to the solution of a partial differential equation with given boundary conditions. The problem is solved when the boundary conditions can be expressed in terms of values of an oblique component of the field on the plane. The question of the relation between accuracy of field prediction and error in field measurement on the plane is taken up. The case when the measured field component is tangent to the plane receives special consideration. Recommendations for further work are made. Author
