# NUMERICAL EXAMPLES OF THE DYNAMIC PERMEABILITY FUNCTION

From (32) and the preceding discussion, we conclude that a reasonable choice of the functional form for dynamic permability is
 (43)
where and .We plot this function in the complex plane for five choices of P in Figure 1. The polar angle is displayed as a function of in Figure 2. Then, the real and imaginary parts are plotted in Figures 3 and 4 as a function of the quantity .

Figure 1 shows that all these choices give very similar behavior in the complex plane. The function looks much like a semi-circle centered at the point (1/2,0) and having radius 1/2 in all cases. But this observation is only exactly true for the case P = 0. For that case it is also true that the relationship between and the polar angle in the complex plane is given exactly by . For the other values of P, this relationship holds approximately true for and , but deviations become substantial in all cases for higher values of , as is observed in Figure 2.

Figure 3 shows that the real part of the dynamic permeability is essentially flat for a wide range of the smaller frequencies, but then the function falls off rapidly as the frequency gets close to the resonance frequency . Figure 4 shows that all the action occurs over six decades of frequency and the main region of the deviation (half maximum and above in the imaginary part) lies approximately in the range , which is just slightly over one decade in width.
