Electromagnetic wave propagation in general relativistic situations: A general solution of the problem

Authors


Abstract

[1] The exact full-wave modeling and computation of the electromagnetic signals propagating through curved space-time is important from theoretical and practical aspects (e.g., for satellite positioning systems). In this paper a general solution method is presented for these problems. Beside this, it is demonstrated that the Method of Inhomogeneous Basic Modes is a natural consequence of Maxwell's equations in the general relativity.
