Suppose we are given a system of classical charges that oscillate harmonically with time. Note that, as before, this can be viewed as the special case of the Fourier transform at a particular frequency of a general time dependent distribution; however, this is a very involved issue that we will examine in detail later in the semester.

The form of the charge distribution we will study for the next few
weeks is:

(11.1) | |||

(11.2) |

The spatial distribution is essentially ``arbitrary''. Actually, we want it to have
