This paper presents a method for the computation of the magnetization and magnetic-field distributions of one transition in a perpendicular recording layer. It is used in a thick single-pole head keeper layer configuration to show that image-charge effects are significant and have a geometry-dependent impact on both height and gradient of the transition.
