In this chapter, we will briefly discuss the evolution for the need of the novel materials, what has been done so far, and what needs to happen in the future. We will give Maxwell’s equations for general anisotropic media and discuss dyadic techniques that can be used in the analysis of anisotropic medium. We will introduce k-domain and detail how to use in the analysis of the general anisotropic media.
