Clarification of Plane Wave Solutions
Hey guys, I'm new here and I just had a quick question about plane waves.
This java applet for plane waves has in it's description "Chose a sign-convention from the four equations (see how two are not plane waves)." I'm confused because it appears all four cases are plane waves. Am I not reading that line correctly? or are two of them really not plane waves?
Thanks for any input!
