The Classical Electromagnetic Modes of a Rectangular Resonant Cavity with particular reference to the text Quantum Physics by R. Eisberg and R. Resnick
W. Zimmermann, Jr., arXiv: 1207.0792 (2012)

Abstract

Three approaches to the derivation of the classical electromagnetic modes of a rectangular cavity are described. In so doing, some apparent errors in a widely used physics text are pointed out.
