Abstract : Integral expressions are presented for the fields interior to a source-free homogeneous volume in terms of the tangential electric and magnetic fields on the surface of the volume. Although this integral representation is available by straightforward methods, to the best of the author's knowledge, it has not appeared before, and it is much simpler than some. The representation also constitutes a statement of Huygen's principle for electromagnetic waves in the sense that the contribution from each surface element is itself a solution of Maxwell's Equations. The relationships are also pointed out between the present representation and previous ones. (Author)
