Solutions of Maxwell equations such as those presented in Chapters 2 through 5 are available in a very limited number of canonical cases that may or may not conveniently match analysis, synthesis, and design problems encountered in engineering applications. There is no doubt that these solutions are very important because they shed light on the physics of the problem and are the necessary basis to understand more complicated situations. Concepts like propagation, dispersion, reflection and scattering, finite signal velocity, and so on, can be learned and appreciated only by examining field analytical solutions.
