The book describes the features that vibrations and waves of all sorts have in commonand includes examples of mechanical, acoustical, and optical manifestations of these phenomena thatunite various parts of physics. The main emphasis, however, is on the oscillatory aspects of theelectromagnetic fieldathat is, on the vibrations, waves, radiation, and the interaction ofelectromagnetic waves with matter.Electromagnetic Vibrations, Waves, and Radiation by George Bekefi and Alan H Barrett This text was developed over a five- ... and preliminary texts prepared for their one-semester course at MIT designed for sophomores majoring In physics but ... to illustrate the theoretical concepts Many illustrations from astrophysics are also included The eight chapters present ...
