Wave splitting and imbedding equations for a spherically symmetric dispersive medium

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter


The direct problem of time dependent electromagnetic scattering in the dispersive
sphere is solved by a wave splitting technique. The electric field is
expanded in a series involving vector spherical harmonics, leading to a system
of wave equations for each term. These systems are reduced to scalar
wave equations for each term, which are solved via reflection operators. Some
preliminary numerical results are presented.
