I didn't misunderstand anything you just conveied. And I really know something about this potential which is difficult to understand .It deducts from special relativity and Maxwell'theory.I fond of it.It is really beautiful,though there is some thing I doubt.I hope you don't interprete my words as sarcasm

The Lienard-Wiechert potential is a mathematical expression that describes the electromagnetic field generated by a moving point charge. It takes into account both the effects of the charge's motion and the delay in the propagation of electromagnetic signals from the charge to a given observation point.
The Lienard-Wiechert potential was independently developed by French physicist Alfred-Marie Lienard and Dutch physicist Hendrik Antoon Lorentz in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Lienard-Wiechert potential differs from other electromagnetic potentials, such as the Coulomb potential and the Biot-Savart law, because it takes into account the relativistic effects of a moving charge, such as time dilation and length contraction.
The Lienard-Wiechert potential is an important tool in the study and understanding of electromagnetic phenomena, particularly in the field of electrodynamics. It is used to describe the behavior of charged particles, such as electrons, in electromagnetic fields.
The Lienard-Wiechert potential has many practical applications, including in the fields of particle accelerators, radiation therapy, and radar technology. It is also used in the development of advanced technologies, such as electromagnetic propulsion systems and high-speed communication devices.
