A novel method of images for solving Laplace's equation and deriving demagnetization factors for spheroidal bodies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The method of images is applied to find the field and charge distribution for a conducting prolate spheroid in a uniform electric field via simple one-dimensional integrals. This solution is then repurposed to yield the demagnetization factors for a prolate spheroid.
