Cherenkov Radiation Has Nothing to Do with X-shaped Localized Waves (comments on " Cherenkov-vavilov Formulation of X-waves " )


— The Localized Waves (LW) are nondiffracting (" soliton-like ") solutions to the wave equations, and are known to exist with subluminal, luminal and superluminal peak-velocities V. For mathematical, and experimental, reasons, the ones that called more attention are the " X-shaped " superluminal waves. Such waves are associated with a cone, so that some… (More)
