Wave beams in smoothly inhomogeneous anisotropic media: a single-mode description (Part I)

  • A. A. Balakin
Article

In this series of papers, we propose a method for the development of an approximate solution of the Maxwell equations in smoothly inhomogeneous anisotropic gyrotropic media with allowance for aberrations, spatial dispersion, and absorption. The connection with the aberration-free approximation equations is shown. In the first paper of the series, we propose a procedure for the development of an approximate scalar wave equation aimed at description of the single-mode propagation of wave beams.
