Anisotropic dielectric sphere

  1. Apr 24, 2012 #1
    I need dipole moment of anisotropic dielectric sphere
    The dielectric tensor is given in cartesian matrix
    I try to find the potential inside and outside by expanding spherical harmonics
    But sinece the dielectric tensor is cartesian
    I have a cartesian derivatives of potential in electric induction D
    When I plug it in the boundary condition
    D normal is continuous
    I end up with nonlinear spherical harmonics (inverse or squared or cubed)
    So, I can not find the coefficients and stuck

    Please help
    It very urgent
