This chapter introduces material relevant to the interaction of atoms and radiation. Maxwell's equations and the electromagnetic wave equation are introduced. The electric and magnetic fields produced by oscillating electric and magnetic dipoles are derived, and the rate at which these dipoles radiate energy and angular-momentum are derived. Multiple fields are considered briefly.

Keywords:   Maxwell's equations, plane electromagnetic waves, electric dipole radiation, magnetic dipole radiation, angular momentum, multiple fields
