About this book

Introduction

Electromagnetic Pulse Propagation in Causal Dielectrics presents a systematic treatment of the theory of the propagation of transient electromagnetic fields (such as ultrashort, ultrawide-band pulses) through homogeneous, isotopic, locally linear media which exhibit both dispersion and absorption. The subject of the book is twofold. Part I presents a detailed rigorous treatment of the fundamental theory of electromagnetic pulse propagation in causally dispersive media that is applicable to dielectric, conducting, or semiconducting media. Part II provides a detailed asymptotic description of plane-wave pulse propagation in a Lorentz model dielectric and provides a rigorous account ot the signal velocity of a pulse in that dispersive medium.
