118) are known as the Maxwell’s equations for the frequency domain. , are applied to electromagnetic systems in which the constitutive relations for all materials are time-invariant and linear. The Maxwell’s equation with a cosinusoidal excitation are solved to obtain the vector phasors for the electromagnetic field E(r, t), B(r, t). For harmonic time dependence, E(r, t) = [E0 (r, ω)eiωt ], the Hermitian magnitude of a complex vector is, |E0 | = [E0 · E0∗ ]1/2 . If the electromagnetic is harmonic in time, the instantaneous rate at which energy is exchanged between the field and the mechanical motion of the charge is the product of, E(r, t) · J(r, t) = E0 (r, ω)eiωt · J0 (r, ω)eiωt .

The Poynting vector represents the flow of energy, both with respect to its magnitude and direction of propagation. 105) in which ∗ represents for the complex conjugate of ‘ ’.

14) where a > 0 is the amplitude of the wave, ν the frequency of the wave which is the reciprocal of its period T , ψ the phase constant, and the argument of the cosine is known as the phase. 9). 16) where cos(ωt − κ · r) is the oscillatory term, κ the wave vector, ω = 2πν the angular frequency, and κ · r represents planes in space of constant phase. 15) remains unchanged when r · s is replaced by r · s + λ, where λ = v (2π/ω) = v T , is the wavelength of the wave which is the minimum distance between the two points on the wave profile that are oscillating in phase at a given instant of time.
