One Big problem with Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics

  1. Apr 19, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    You can find the problem in Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics 3rd edition. Chapter 10.19.

    I already calculated the transmission coefficients, but mine are fourth of those given by Jackson. I do not know why.

    My calculation is based on Problem 10.18. I use dipole moments approximation.

    I hope someone can help me correct my error. Thank you very much!

    Does that site violate the publisher's copyright on Jackson?

    Oh my god! That is just a photo. If so, I will tell him to delete it.

    I have solved this problem. Oh... I should have said I found my problem. I did not read the book carefully enough. Thank you, guys!
