Yup...that is how it looks to be (at least classically).

I suppose, if you assumed no coupling, the fields would just add linearly.

Interesting. How would you solve this problem with coupling? The law of Biot and Savart would not work. I guess you would hold the currents in the loops constant.

[tex]emf_1=\epsilon_1-\frac{d\Phi_{21}}{dt}[/tex]

[tex]emf_2=\epsilon_2-\frac{d\Phi_{12}}{dt}[/tex]

Where [tex]\Phi_{12}[/tex] that's the flux on 2 due to 1 and vice versa. It's a coupled differential equation. If you had 3 loops, you'd just have more terms and more equations. Don't quote me on this, it's been a while since I've done this stuff :P.
