Em Waves Resulting from the Same Cause Never Cross Each Other the Principle of Superposition Applies Only to em Waves from Independent Sources Fundamental Mistake in Established Methods of Analysis of em Wave Radiation and Propagation

Authors: Henok Tadesse

This paper presents a new theory of radiation and propagation of electromagnetic (EM) waves: EM waves caused by the same cause will never cross each other. It discloses a fundamental mistake in the established assumptions and method of analysis of radiation and propagation problems of electromagnetic waves and application of superposition principle. It implies invalidation of the established solutions to and implications of Maxwell’s equations, including the invalidation of the “radiation” concept of EM waves (light). The 1/r dependent fields implied by the established methods of analysis of Maxwell’s equations do not exist in reality. There is no wave “detached” from its source. The possibility of bending an EM wave on its way by another dependent EM wave will also be presented. The analogy of propagation of EM waves with the flow of fluids will also be discussed.
