3D dipole antenna pattern corresponding to simple linear antenna.

To do:

(i) Physically accurate field strengths

(ii) Solid angle slows things down considerably at higher resolutions...

Larmor formula: P=(2/3)(qa)^2/c^3; dP/d\Omega = (1/4pi)(qa)^2/c^3sin^2(theta).

Acceleration of source charge:

Electric field strength goes like (e/c)(a*sinT/r). (E is proportional to Xcross(Xcrossa).) Exhibit just angular dependence (f is a visibility scale factor):

Electric and magnetic field directions and Poynting vector (R,G,Y):

Solid angle around observation direction. (Higher resolution slows down plotting to a crawl, so don't try smaller opening angles at high resolution until observation direction has been set.)
