Systemgenerated EMP
Abstract
The external systemgenerated electromagnetic pulse (SGEMP) problem (i.e. electromagnetic fields produced by a nuclear burst outside and on the surface of a system in a vacuum) is discussed. Characteristics of the incident photon pulse and the emitted electrons are considered. Analytical approaches to the problem based on magneticfield and electricfield formulations of an electromagnetic boundaryvalue problem are reviewed; numerical calculations employing the Boltzmann equation and the method of trajectory tracking particles are also mentioned.
