Electromagnetic field of a rotating magnetic dipole and electric-charge motion in this field


In this paper, we present the results of a study of the electromagnetic field in the near and intermediate zones of a magnetic dipole rotating in free space. Examples of solving the relativistic equations of the charged-particle motion in this field are given. The energy, which can be acquired by the particles during acceleration, is estimated.
