The most common formulations of the equivalence principle use both electric and magnetic currents radiating in free space or only electric (magnetic) currents radiating in presence of a perfectly magnetic (electric) conductor.

### An equivalence theorem based on the use of electric currents radiating in free space

#### Abstract

The most common formulations of the equivalence principle use both electric and magnetic currents radiating in free space or only electric (magnetic) currents radiating in presence of a perfectly magnetic (electric) conductor. In this paper, a formulation is provided for equivalent currents of only electric (magnetic) type as a function of the tangential total fields of the original problem over the equivalence surface. The formulation of these equivalent currents becomes simple for some canonical surfaces, like a plane, a cylinder and a sphere. Explicit expressions of the equivalent electric currents on a spherical surface are provided in terms of spherical wave functions.
