Variational estimates of the polarizabilities of inhomogeneous dielectric bodies of random shape
On the basis of the fact that the energy functional (represented in different forms) of the electric field in dielectrics is minimal on the solutions of the equations of the electrostatics of the dielectrics, methods are proposed for determining bounds for the polarizability tensors of inhomogeneous anisotropic dielectric bodies of random shape. The effectiveness of the method is demonstrated by examples.
