Simple Applications of Maxwell Theory

  • Florian ScheckEmail author
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


In this chapter we select some characteristic examples from the great wealth of electromagnetic and optical phenomena which are described successfully by Maxwell’s equations. These case studies are restricted to the classical, non quantized version of the theory. The field of semi-classical interactions of quantum matter and classical radiation field, as well as the full quantum field theoretic treatment of Maxwell theory is described in many monographs or textbooks, such as, e.g., [QP].
