Abstract:

IN THE STUDY OF THE Cerenkov effect in the production of microwaves, the treatment follows the simplest possible mathematical formulations. Assuming the generalities to be well known, it amounts to formulating and evaluating boundary value problems. Mathematics have been kept in their simplest form. Almost all deductions are made on models consisting of infinite and semiinfinite media traversed by line sources rather than point sources. In principle, point sources can be converted to line sources by integration. Purely formal results were obtained for the cases where fast charged particles traverse infinite and bounded media. In all cases, the charge has been considered as a point line or ring charge, the medium was considered without dispersion and without loss. Thus, an idealized picture is obtained which is far from reality. Author
