Furthermore, Kawaguchi in a series of papers [59], emphasized the significance of such superpotentials starting from a Hertzian analysis of the Lienard-Wiechert potentials in the effort of discovering an underlying geometrization of Maxwellian electrodynamics.

This is shown analytically by the Lienard-Wiechert potentials [1] from which the radiated component of the electric field due to a charge q can be written as
This result confirms the linear relationship expected from the Lienard-Wiechert potentials that the radiated field is proportional to the charge.
(6) also offers some indication about how the acceleration term in the Lienard-Wiechert potentials might be influenced by the particular details of the radiation features discussed in connection with Figure 1.
In Chapter 6, the electromagnetic field of a moving point charge is derived using the Lienard-Wiechert potentials. Chapter 7 details dipole radiation.
