On the quasi-polynomial 3D potentials of electric and magnetic fields
Spectrographic electron and ion optical structures markedly raise the possibilities of modern energy and mass analysis. Electric and magnetic fields which potentials are expressed by functions homogeneous in Euler’s sense are the effective instrumentation that is used for creating new spectrographic analytical devices with the determined working characteristics. This paper puts forward and discusses some methods for building 3D harmonic and homogeneous in Euler’s sense structures representable as the polynomials of finite degree with respect to one of variables. These strictly mathematical approaches provide a possibility of expanding significantly a class of quasi-polynomial potentials and of enriching modern analytical instrumentation by new spectrographic electrical and magnetic configurations.
