This book is devoted to investigations of non-stationary electromagnetic processes. It offers a good opportunity to introduce the Volterra integral equation method more widely to the electromagnetic community. The explicit mathematical theory is combined with examples of its application in electromagnetic devices, optoelectronics, and photonics, where time-domain methods become a powerful tool for modeling. Particular consideration is given to electromagnetic transients in time-varying media and their potential applications.

"In this book, the results of long-term efforts are presented that were aimed to create a comprehensive and complete description of electromagnetic wave propagation in media with time-varying parameters. The authors, highly recognised in this field, study problems of non-stationary electrodynamics on the basis of boundary integral equation formulations. They successfully combine the mathematical theory with application examples. This rigorous and at the same time easy-to-understand explanation of non-stationary electromagnetic phenomena will be of great interest to researchers from the physical science community.
