Hi,
I would like to build an environment for working on electrodynamics
related problems using notations that mimics my writings on paper as
closely as possible. Let say that there is a user defined type Vec so
that E_Vec has internal representation {E_1,E_2,E_3}. Accordingly r_Vec
would be represented internally as {r_1,r_2,r_3}. Than E[r] would be
represented as {E_1[r_1,r_2,r_3],E_2[r_1,r_2,r_3],E_3[r_1,r_2,r_3]}.
Assuming that the above construction is possible than a paper expression
like div E(r) would be entered on the notebook as
Div[E[r],Cartesian[r]].
I used to develop my code in Mathematica and generate Fortran code for
production so that I would like to be able to:
- formulate (exactly) a finite/infinite domain electrodynamic problem.
- use DSolve or NDSolve (for simple test cases).
- to generate Fortran formatted output (after proper discretization).
Thanks, Ted
