We describe the solution of Maxwell’s equations in systems of homogeneous, isotropic, and linear media that exhibit cylindrical symmetry around a given axis. The solutions are generally expressed in terms of Bessel functions of various kinds and integer orders. The properties of these solutions are discussed in some detail throughout the chapter, where several practical applications are also pointed out.
