Abstract

In this chapter we will develop the basic electromagnetic characteristics that account when plane electromagnetic radiation propagates throughout an anisotropic linear material. With this aim it is necessary to explain the concept of anisotropy. In order to be clear we will begin with some easy examples that will allow us to understand, not only what does it mean, but also the importance of such a concept in physics.
