By now, scientists have used both methods extensively, but historically the empirical model was developed first, since at the time the Earth's magnetism was first discovered and studied, the physics by which it could be generated was completely unknown.

There are two primary methods by which one can generate a mathematical description of the Earth's magnetic field, or any other field for that matter.

I have inserted a few additional references that came to my attention only after this article was essentially finished.

So far as I know the second edition is out of print at this time.

But, as you might imagine, modern computers can add a lot of numbers together very fast, so while this may have been a fundamental problem for Gauss, it is no longer all that bothersome.
