Generalized Second-Order Partial Derivatives of 1/r
Hnizdo, V.
European Journal of Physics, v32 n2 p287-297 Mar 2011
The generalized second-order partial derivatives of 1/r, where r is the radial distance in three dimensions (3D), are obtained using a result of the potential theory of classical analysis. Some non-spherical-regularization alternatives to the standard spherical-regularization expression for the derivatives are derived. The utility of a spheroidal-regularization expression is illustrated on an example from classical electrodynamics. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
