When the vector magnetic potential (VMP) concept is combined with high-precision computation, like that available in Mathematica or Derive software, an analysis technique can be developed that also greatly simplifies the study of electric and magnetic fields created by individual accelerated particles. Sometimes this technique yields mathematical results that may not be intuitively obvious. For example, it can be shown that a linearly accelerated charge generates a field which opposes its own acceleration in a manner analogous to Newtonian inertial forces. Conditions for the two to be equal are developed. Further, it can be shown that under certain conditions, a spinning charge could generate a static electric field equal numerically to its own supposed Coulomb field simply because it is spinning Finally, it can be shown that the spinning charge, when linearly accelerated, gives results consistent with restricted relativity concepts
