Inclusions in a bulk smectic phase distort the ordering of nearby layers. We argue that a multipole expansion for this distortion represents a powerful technique for understanding the linear interactions between inclusions with arbitrary boundary conditions. The fields for the first few higher-order moments are derived and some specific examples are discussed. Our results show the importance of the orientation and/or configuration of the inclusions.
