Description: In this final session, we consider the interference of the electromagnetic waves that are produced by more than one charge oscillating sinusoidally. We only consider fields at locations sufficiently far from the charges, where all fields other than the radiated ones can be ignored, and the rays from every charge to the region of interest can be approximated to be parallel.

Instructor: Prof. Wit Busza
