Vector Potential in Schrodinger eqn

  1. Sep 29, 2004 #1
    How do you get the B field from the magnetic potential?
    I tried converting the curl into matrix format, but the corresponding matrix can't be inverted.

    The vector potential is added to the Schrodinger equation by making the substitution
    [tex] \vec{p} = \vec{p} - e/c\vec{A} [/tex].
