Multipole expansions for time-dependent charge and current distributions in quasistatic approximation.
We propose a consistent approach to the definition of electric, magnetic, and toroidal multipole moments. Electric and magnetic fields are split into potential, vortex, and radiative terms, with the latter ones dropped off in the quasistatic approximation. The potential part of the electric field, the vortex parts of the magnetic field and vector potential contain gradients of scalar functions. Formally introducing magnetic and toroidal analogs of the electric charge, we apply multipole expansions for those scalars. Closed-form expressions are derived in an arbitrary order for electric, magnetic, and toroidal multipoles, which constitute a full system for expansions of the electromagnetic field.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
