 About the Book 

A realistic description of plasmas, metals, semiconductors and insulators often requires spatially dispersive (non-local) models. This means that the dielectric function which characterizes the material medium depends on the wave-vector, as well asMoreA realistic description of plasmas, metals, semiconductors and insulators often requires spatially dispersive (non-local) models. This means that the dielectric function which characterizes the material medium depends on the wave-vector, as well as on the frequency. Surprisingly, there is no book which is entirely devoted to this important subject. The chapters presented in this book discuss electromagnetic (polariton) wave propagation in the bulk, at surfaces, in thin films and superlattices, in spheres and on cylinders. The emphasis is on advances in research in the last decade. Spatial Dispersion in Solids and Plasmas will be of multidisciplinary interest covering plasma physics, solid-state physics, optics, surface physics, and electrical engineering.
