Please help with this derivation on part of the retarded potential

I cannot do it with Latex, so I have to up load with image!! I have to actually go to physics forum, type in the Latex there and then copy on to Woed, then scan and then upload onto Tinypic to put it on here. If you have any better idea to do Latex direct here, that would save a lot of time.

I'll look at the rest of the problem (no promises) but I can quickly address the LaTeX problem. There is a sticky about this in the LaTeX Help forum, but briefly we can use the "command line"

I read your other post and I'll look into the Latex stuff. How about the current question? I am getting quite despirate!!! Sorry!!

Thanks

Okay, first an admission. I am somewhat familiar with advanced and retarded Green's functions, not advanced and retarded potentials. That they are related is clear, but I don't know just how to relate one to the other.

I noticed an interesting mistake in the equation below (1). You are correct that there are similarities with (1), but you have missed the details of the primes. Here is what the equation should be:

http://latex.codecogs.com/png.latex?...artial z&#39;}

http://latex.codecogs.com/png.latex?... \eta \right )

That, at least, puts that term in the form you need it.

Thanks, actually that's the second part of my question, http://latex.codecogs.com/png.latex?...r\;&#39;,t_r)} is at the source point (x',y',z') so It is should be http://latex.codecogs.com/png.latex?...t z J_{z&#39;} instead of http://latex.codecogs.com/png.latex?... +\hat z J_{z} in all the equation.

But as show in (A), there is the charge density term that I really don't get:

http://latex.codecogs.com/png.latex?...abla&#39;\eta)

I guess I reverse engineering your latex and got it now!!! Now that I know how to post Latex, I am alive!!!
