## Abstract

In this paper transient electromagnetic wave propagation in an inhomogeneous,

cold plasma is considered. It is assumed that a constant magnetic

induction is present and that the plasma is spatially inhomogeneous in the

direction of the magnetic induction. Losses in the plasma are modeled with a

collision frequency ν. The direct problem, which is to calculate the reflected

and transmitted responses of the plasma, is considered in this paper. Special

attention is paid to the precursor effects in the plasma and several examples

of precursor effects in an inhomogeneous plasma are showed.
