where E0 is the electric field at the center, H(t) is either 1 or -1 depending on the time, and β is half the curvature of the field.

That last part is what I've been having issues with. What exactly is the "curvature" of the field? Is this just a term that comes from the expansion of the field using spherical harmonics? Any help or directions would be great.
