Maxwell Equations and Electromagnetic Waves

  • Jean-Claude Nédélec
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 144)


Electromagnetic waves are defined by the electric field E and the magnetic field H at each point in R 3. We start by describing their laws of propagation in an isotropic dielectric medium, which is characterized by the electric permittivity ε and the magnetic permeability μ.
