Scattering by a Fast‐Spinning Conducting Cylinder
Institut Henri Poincaré, 86 Bis Route de Croissy, 78110 Le Vésinet, France
A conducting circular cylinder, immersed in an electromagnetic plane wave, spinning with a large velocity, behaves as a perfectly conducting stationary cylinder when the tangential velocity at its surface tends to the velocity of light.
Keywords: scattering by a rotating cylinder, Maxwell's equations in rotating coordinates, relativistic rotations, accelerated motions, Magnus effect
