In this work we substantiate the applying of the Tikhonov-Samarski vector decomposition theorem (TS-theorem) to vector fields in classical electrodynamics. We show that the standard Helmholtz vector decomposition theorem does not always apply to some vector fields in classical electrodynamics. Using the TS-theorem, within the framework of the so called v… CONTINUE READING
