Vector potential of a three-dimensional vector field

    Note:   linalg::vectorPotential will be removed in a future release. Use vectorPotential instead.

Use only in the MuPAD Notebook Interface.

This functionality does not run in MATLAB.


linalg::vectorPotential(j, [x1, x2, x3], <Test>)


linalg::vectorPotential(j, x) returns the vector potential of the vector field with respect to . This is a vector field with .

linalg::vectorPotential and vectorPotential are equivalent. See details and examples on the vectorPotential help page.



A list of three arithmetical expressions, or a 3-dimensional vector (i.e., a 3×1 or 1 ×3 matrix of a domain of category Cat::Matrix)

x1, x2, x3

(indexed) identifiers



linalg::vectorPotential only checks whether the vector field j has a vector potential and returns TRUE or FALSE, respectively.

Return Values

Vector with three components, i.e., an 3 ×1 or 1×n matrix of a domain of category Cat::Matrix, or a boolean value.
