    Following the notation of the reference quoted in footnote (6),B(ext) is understood to represent the retarded external field (since it is to be uniform and constant in time, in this calculation, then retardation plays no role in the external field in this case) whileE(−) ≡ [E(ret) −E(adv]/2 andB(−) ≡ [B(ret) −B(adv)]/2. FinallyV is the volume andS is the surrounding surface in which the electron and the external magnetic field are contained.ADSCrossRefGoogle Scholar
