Thought experiments that shed light on the nature of optical linear and angular momenta

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Invoking tools and techniques from elementary theories of classical electrodynamics and special relativity, we analyze some of the thought experiments that have contributed substantively to the conceptual development and understanding of the linear and angular momenta of light.
