Curse of the Ever Curious Expanding Mind!

So as not to leave this discussion dangling, I will leave you all with some (IMHO, higher level). what I will call, base information.

It's probably good practice to consider many views, opinions and approaches to a subject or problem; with an open
mind - often times there are many correct answers and solutions! However, as you all know, picking the best "one" for
the task-at-hand can be a daunting challenge... Good luck and Happy Holidays!


What Are Scalar Waves? Horst Eckardt, 2012

Abstract: There is a wide confusion on what are "scalar waves" in serious and less serious literature on electrical
engineering. In this paper we explain that this type of waves are longitudinal waves of potentials. It is shown that a
longitudinal wave is a combination of a vector potential with a scalar potential. There is a full analogue to acoustic
waves. Transmitters and receivers for longitudinal electro-magnetic waves are discussed.

Includes a good discussion on transmitters and receivers of longitudinal waves and suggestions relating to the
Faraday Cage test. Also points out that the speed of propagation depends on the form of the waves, and; to
quote "There are rumors that Eric P. Dollard found a propagation speed of longitudinal waves of pi/2 times c
(where c is the speed of light) but there are no reliable experiments on this reported in the literature." or

What is the difference between longitudinal and transverse waves?

A brief Introduction to Scalar Physics, Thomas Minderle, Version 2, May 23, 2014
The introduction, Basics, deals with Math and Physics Terms and Symbols. Chapter 6, "Wave Equations," discusses
Transverse and Longitudinal waves, displacement current and the Nature of Charge. The text presents both (almost
introductory level) descriptive narration along with the pertinent mathematical equations.

And so on and so forth... interesting suff, that is, if your into studying interesting stuff!
Or, if you're just suffering from "the curse of the ever curious expanding mind!"
