Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello

I have found in some text books that the magnetic scalar potential is continuous across a boundary. Now, how can this be explained starting from the two boundary conditions of Maxwell's equations (continuity of normal flux density Bn and tangential field Ht)?

Thanks in advance for your hints.

H=-grad phi would be infinite if phi were not continuous.
