Propagation of electromagnetic waves in a random medium and nonzero rest mass of the photon
- 41 Downloads
The propagation of electromagnetic waves is studied in a Maxwell vacuum with σ≠0. The photon loses energy during its propagation through this vacuum. This dissipation of energy is related to the fluctuation of the refractive index of the underlying vacuum. There exists a bounded and unique solution in the limit σ → 0 in the asymptotic region. The geometric structure of the background space-time is Finslerian in nature.
