This book, distinguishing itself from
other books on the same topics, presents an
electrodynamics theory that provides an unified
selfconsistent approach to describe mode excitations
and mode couplings, including the optical guidedwave
interactions, which occur in various devices of
guidedwave optics, integrated optics, acoustooptics,
electrooptics, and magnetooptics. Each specific wave
interaction turns out to be a special case of the most
general coupledmode equations under certain dielectric
perturbation, and the dielectric perturbation tensor can
be readily used to calculate the coupling coefficients.
The book also presents an approach of grouptheoretical
analysis to the modecoupling problems. Such an analysis
usually reveals important electromagnetic properties of
complex media waveguiding structures without detailed
solutions of equations with boundaryvalues problems
associated to those structures. Therefore, this book
provides with powerful tools for studying very
complicated problems that appear in theoretical and
applied electrodynamics, integrated optics,
acoustooptics, electrooptics, and magnetooptics, in
research and in industrial applications as well.
