current flow is sufficiently simple that integral (9.3) for the vector potential can be

found in relatively simple, closed form. As an example of such a system we

consider ...

**Linear**Antenna For certain radiating systems the geometry ofcurrent flow is sufficiently simple that integral (9.3) for the vector potential can be

found in relatively simple, closed form. As an example of such a system we

To obtain a connection between the coordinates (x', y', z', /') of system K' and (x, y,

z, t) of system K it is only necessary to assume that the transformation is

This seems very plausible and is equivalent to the assumption that space-time is
