Pulse response functions of dielectric susceptibility

  • Y. Y. Yeung
  • F. G. Shin


As dielectric response in the time domain is becoming increasingly of experimental relevance and as such responses for quite a number of well-established susceptibility formulae are still unknown, we examine in this paper how pulse response functions may be calculated from susceptibility by use of various integral transform methods. We need to specialize some parameters in many cases to keep the mathematics sufficiently tractable. The asymptotic behaviour of pulse responses are then classified. Finally we comment on the adequacy of the Shin-Yeung response in the time domain.
