The practice of transforming frequency-domain results into the time domain is fairly common in electromagnetics. For certain classes of problems, it is possible to obtain a direct solution in the time domain. A summary of these solutions is given in Hohmann and Ward (1986). Presented here is another problem which can be solved directly in the time domain—the magnetic field of horizontal coaxial dipoles on the surface of a homogeneous half-space. Solutions are presented for both an impulse transmitter current and a step turnon in the transmitter current. The solution in the time domain is obtained by taking the inverse Laplace transform of the product of the frequency-domain solution and the Laplace-domain representation of the current waveform.
