Debye potentials adapted to cylindrical coordinates

G. F, R. Rosas Rodríguez


Using the method of adjoint operators, the solution to the source-free Maxwell equations is expressed in terms of two real Debye potentials adapted to circular, parabolic or elliptic cylindrical coordinates. Analogous expressions are obtained for the solutions of the Einstein vacuum field equations linearized about the Minkowski space-time.
