Scope: A definitive treatment of the mathematical analysis of macroscopic dielectric and magnetic properties of geophysical, biological and other materials, including special reference to chiral and nonlinear material, the effects of structure and anistrophy are discussed in detail, as well as mixtures involving chiral and nonlinear materials, high-frequency scattering phenomena and dispersive properties are also discussed.
This book includes analysis of special phenomena that the mixing process can cause, such as the difference in character between a mixture and its constituent parts. Mixing results are applied to different materials in geophysics and biology. References are also made to the historical perspectives of dielectric modelling. Examples are included throughout the text.
