First Order Wavelike Phenomena with Electromagnetic and Acoustic Applications
MetadataShow full item record
The relationship between Maxwell’s equations and the wave equation is exploited to show how problems involving the latter can be converted from a second order differential equation into one of the first order. As an immediate consequence it becomes possible to solve the wave equation without resorting to double differentiation or integration. An example of application is given utilising the Maxwellian equations to solve both an electromagnetic and an equivalent acoustic wave problem.
