**Theory of Electromagnetic Fields**

by Andrzej Wolski

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 51

**Description**:

We discuss the theory of electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We begin by reviewing Maxwell's equations and their physical significance. We show that in free space, there are solutions to Maxwell's equations representing the propagation of electromagnetic fields as waves.
