Transmission problem for the electromagnetic scattering by a dissipative chiral obstacle
Pages: 359 – 380
Electromagnetic scattering by a dissipative chiral obstacle in achiral surrounding leads to a transmission problem. The transmission problem is reduced to a single integral equation over the boundary of the obstacle with one unknown tangential vector field. The equation is shown to be uniquely solvable except for some values of the material parameters and the frequency. The principal symbol of a boundary integral operator is also calculated.
