Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Complex Plasma
Electromagnetic phenomena in a medium are governed by Maxwell’s equations. As derived in all texts on electromagnetic theory, Maxwell’s equations lead to the equation for the propagation of an electromagnetic wave in an electrically neutral medium. Nonlinear propagation of electromagnetic waves with uniform and non-uniform irradiance on the wave front have been explored.
