Decomposition of a Divergenceless Vector Field

  1. Mar 16, 2004 #1
    Viva!


    I usually come upon this statement:

    " Since B is solenoidal, it can be split into Toroidal and Poloidal parts, i.e, B=Bt+Bp, where Bt=curl(Tr) and Bp=curlcurl(Pr)"


    How can I prove this??

    I think it is somehow related with the stokes theorem...


    Looking forward for someone to explain me this, once for all.
    Cheers!

    We can't answer that without knowing what "Tr" and "Pr" are.
