%X A head sensitivity function is calculated using 3-D magnetic fields. The 3-D magnetic fields are calculated for recorded tracks with finite widths. The magnetization in the medium is expressed in 2-D Fourier series in the plane of the film and is assumed uniform through the thickness of the film. The reproduce head is idealized. These techniques are applied to data found in the literature for very narrow tracks ( 0.5 mu;m). A surprising amount of the experimental data can be explained by the finite width of the tracks. The fine structure of the measurements can then be isolated and attributed to the particular features of the individual heads
