I am a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at Tulane University. My research is on the analysis of the physical and chemical properties of polymers. Despite the chemistry that I need and use in my research, I haven't taken a chemistry class since high school.

comment Is the existence of electromagnetic standing waves dependent on the observers reference frame?
@RobJeffries, which sign is it that I have wrong? I'll double check my algebra, but I'm traveling today, and won't be able to do it until after the bounty expires.

comment Is the existence of electromagnetic standing waves dependent on the observers reference frame?
Okay, I have added a bunch to my answer that completely changes the conclusion. The upvoters should probably reconsider their votes (the downvoter is welcome to reconsider as well). Thank you everyone for the comments; my answer here has been bothering me since I posted it, and I hadn't yet been motivated enough to figure out what was wrong with it.

Fixed a major conceptual error. This completely changes the overall conclusion of the answer.
