Paper Abstract

Exact time-dependent solutions of the source- and current-free acoustic equation and Maxwell''s equations are given, which, in the wave zone, are packets of energy shot through a cone. Such solutions are called " bullets." Any exact solution of the source- and current-free acoustic equation and Maxwell''s equations can be obtained in many ways by pulsing suitable sources and currents. By combining both previous results, explicit examples of pulsed sources and currents which generate the bullets are obtained. They appear to be physically realizable.
