Plane Waves: Frequency-Domain Solutions

  • Jerry H. GinsbergEmail author


The frequency domain now becomes the lens for our study of plane waves. We will not rely on prior developments in the time domain, such as the d’Alembert solution and the ensuing wave image construction technique. The primary reason for pursuing the analysis in a self-contained manner is that it will prepare us for the study of multidimensional phenomena, for which a time-domain solution might not be available as a guide.
