Kinks and Maxwell's Equations--EM Wave Radiation


W. Watson

Jan 1, 1970
In some more advanced physics books, the idea of how waves form and detach from an
oscillating electric dipole is shown using the concept of a kink. Is it possible to
derive the propagated wave equation from that approach, or does it simply require
Maxwell's equations?
