Light scattering

  1. Aug 28, 2010 #1
    I am following advice from this page:
    http://www.phys.uu.nl/~thooft/theorist.html

    and I'm particularly puzzled by the following topics (in bold):

    Maxwell's laws in a medium. Boundaries. Solving the equations in:

    * vacumm and homogeneous medium (electromagnetic waves)
    * in a box (wave guides)
    * at boundaries (fraction and reflection)


    The vector potential and gauge invariance (extremely important)
    emission and absorption on EM waves (antenna)
    light scattering against objects.


    What books deal with those subjects?
