The medium matrix is given by

where ρk,r is the volume density of (inertial) mass and St,j,p,q is the compliance.

Electromagnetic Waves

For electromagnetic waves the spatial differential operator in the system of (3.12) is given by

The medium matrix is found to be

where εk,r is the permittivity and μJ,P is the permeability.
