S. system are as follows: 18 REVIEW 01 CLASSICAL ELECTRODYNAMICS (a) Gauss's theorem applied to Coulomb's Law: (b) the absence of free magnetic poles: (c) Faraday's and Lenz's law of electromagnetic induction (d) Ampere's law: In these equations D is the electric displacement and 13 the magnetic induction, while E_ and H are the electric and magnetic fields. The electric charge density is given by P. Maxwell observed that the equations are inconsistent in this present form if J' is identified with the ordinary current density J.

13) without affecting the values of E_ and H obtained. 52) un- couples those equations, enabling them to be solved for $ and A separately: These are known as the inhomogeneous wave equations. 55) consist of particular solutions involving integrals over the charge and 32 REVIEW OF CLASSICAL ELECTRODYNAMICS current distributions together with complementary solutions obtained by setting J = p = 0. The latter are obviously just the electromagnetic waves discussed previously, since the scalar and vector potentials then satisfy the same homogeneous wave equations as the fields E_ and PI.

These arise when the amplitudes are equal, E, = E, = £„, and the phase difference 6 = - -rr/2. 38) to obtain the actual electric field components. ) correspond to left and right circularly-polarized waves respectively. The two circularly-polarized waves form an alternative set of independent field polarizations which is especially useful in many problems concerning the interaction of light with atoms subjected to external magnetic fields. 4). 5. i are the complex amplitudes The energy density and the Poynting vector By applying the principle of conservation of energy to a finite volume V bounded by the surface S, we can derive an expression for the energy flux associated with time-dependent electromagnetic fields.
