7. Solution to Maxwell's Eqns for arbitrary sources arbitrary current charges find => Greens function Note, Griffith does not follow this approach, but uses the result! Derivation via Green functions is a good motivation! Solution for boundary conditions for "convolution" Green function satisfies: Green function Lec 20 - 5.

Therefore differentiation with respect to ! Boundary conditions: require if in a limited volume Summary: Green function is a solution of a PDE function with -function source term, subject to the desired boundary condition. => put hard work into finding Green function => once Green function known, problem of finding solution for any given source distribution shifted from solving a PDE to integration (convolution between Green function and source) 7.2 Solution of a wave equation via Green functions Jackson, 2nd ed., ch. 6.6 and 12.11
