Abstract:

The presented exact solutions of homogeneous Maxwells equations in complex media and free space describe fields having a rather involved curl structure and a very small-about several wave lengths of composing plane waves-and clearly defined core region with maximum intensity of field oscillations. In a given Lorentz frame L, a set of the obtalned exact time-harmonic solutions of the free-space homogeneous Maxwell equations consists of three subsets-termed storms, whirls, and tornadoes for the sake of brevity-for which time average energy flux is identically zero at all points, azimuthal, and spiral, respectively. In any other Lorentz frame L, they will be observed as a kind of electromagnetic missiles moving without dispersing at speed V C. The solutions which describe finite-energy evolving electromagnetic storms, whirls, tornadoes are also presented.
