Electromagnetism and Relativity
10.1 Introduction
If I am moving at a large velocity along a light wave, what propagation velocity should I measure? This was a question young Einstein asked himself and in 1905, he published a monumental paper o

Radiation by Moving Charges
8.1 Introduction
The problem of radiation of electromagnetic waves by a single charged particle moving at an arbitrary velocity had correctly been formulated independently by Lienard and Wiechert before the advent of
