The surface structure of the magnetic field in stars is one part of the
information about the surface inhomogeneities like brightness, movement or
chemical composition, which is contained in the integral radiation flux but
distorted beyond recognition by losses of information on the topographical
arrangement over the surface because of convolution processes and partial
invisibility. Therefore, the complicated processes, beginning with the
representation of the map of the surface field distribution and ending with
the resulting phase-curves of the integral magnetic field, are simulated by
a computer program. We use this program as a tool for the analysis of
the magnetic field structure out of the really observed data in phase
diagrams by variation of the parameters and by fitting the calculated
curves to the observed ones.
