We find first nonlinear correction to the field, produced by a static charge at rest in a background constant magnetic field. It is quadratic in the charge and purely magnetic. The third-rank polarization tensor - the nonlinear response function - is written within the local approximation of the effective action in an otherwise model- and approximation-independent way within any P-invariant nonlinear electrodynamics, QED included. 

Nonlinearity in Electro- and Magneto-statics with and without External Field

Due to the nonlinearity of QED, a static charge becomes a magnetic dipole if placed in a magnetic field. Already without external field, the cubic Maxwell equation for the field of a point charge has

Coulomb field in a constant electromagnetic background

Nonlinear Maxwell equations are written up to the third-power deviations from a constant-field background, valid within any local nonlinear electrodynamics including QED with a Euler-Heisenberg (EH)

Magnetic response to applied electrostatic field in external magnetic field

We show, within QED and other possible nonlinear theories, that a static charge localized in a finite domain of space becomes a magnetic dipole, if it is placed in an external (constant and

Magnetic response from constant backgrounds to Coulomb sources

Within general nonlinear electrodynamics given by a local action, very special magnetic field configuration carrying no magnetic charge is found as a linear response of the vacuum, filled with

Nonlinear corrections in basic problems of electro- and magneto-statics in the vacuum

We point that any theoretically found value for an electromagnetic multipole of a baryon or a meson should be subjected to ``renormalization'' due to nonlinearity of QED. We find third-power

String-Like Electrostatic Interaction from QED with Infinite Magnetic Field

In the limit of infinite external magnetic field B the static field of an electric charge is squeezed into a string parallel to B. Near the charge the potential grows like |x_3|(ln |x_3| + const)

Electric field of a pointlike charge in a strong magnetic field and ground state of a hydrogenlike atom

In an external constant magnetic field, so strong that the electron Larmour length is much shorter than its Compton length, we consider the modification of the Coulomb potential of a point charge
