Abstract

In the previous chapter, electromagnetic waves were introduced as a fundamental phenomenon. All electromagnetic radiation fields can be described using the equations and elementary solutions presented there. The general and exact solution is, however, either too complex or cannot be determined at all. Therefore, the special characteristics of each problem will be used to simplify the description.
