Paper Abstract

The medium where the electromagnetic field propagates, in relation to the parameters characterizing the electric field, is found to form a linear dynamic system. The magnetic field parameters are related in a similar way. Based on this statement the Maxwell macroscopic equations are derived from the microscopic equations. The relative dielectric constant is a positive real function of complex variable and can be represented by the fractional-rational function. The paper describes the mathematical grounds of the substance polarization Lorentz model. Besides its correction is given taking account of the magnetic field action. A consideration of the relative dielectric constant in space of a complex variable enables, us, along with the Kramers-Kronig formula, to obtain a series of new relationships for its real and imaginary parts. We derived the expression of the coefficient of transfer of a plane wave through the propagation medium. The requirements are given to which the transfer coefficient must satisfy when the signal transfer is not distorted.
