Hi,

I would like to verify analytically that a vector potential of the form A=1/2(-yB0,xB0,0) produces a constant magnetic flux density of magnitude B0 in the z direction.
(I guess I'd have to use the relation B=[tex]\forall[/tex][tex]\wedge[/tex]A...)

That is correct (assuming you meant to write the symbol [tex]\nabla[/tex]). Do you have a question?

Nope, I just look for a method to prove it mathematically

Vector potential and constant magnetic flux density

Write out the components of [tex]\vec{\nabla} \times \vec{A}[/tex] in Cartesian coordinates.
