behavior of n(w) and the location of its poles and branch cuts needs to be
considered for an accurate description of the amplitude. In general the amplitude
remains very small, however. Only when the elapsed time reaches f1 = k'(0)x ...
First Precursor A more accurate expression than (7.139) for the amplitude at early
times can be obtained following Sommerfeld. We have seen that the amplitude at
times soon after t = to is determined by the behavior of the integrand in (7.124) ...
The amplitude will then be given accurately by an integration only over the
contours wrapped around the singularities of A(&>). For example, we consider an
incident wave of the form u,(0, t) = 0(t)e"" sin (0- vt) (7.149) where 0(t) is the step ...

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review

"Jackson E&M is about learning how to approximate reliably...the entire book, with few exceptions, is a mathematical discussion on how to solve [the same] 4 problems for different boundary conditions." Read full review
