Polynomial Operators and Green Functions

By Ismo Veikko Lindell and Femke Olyslager
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 30, 59-84, 2001


Green functions corresponding to various polynomial partial differential operators of second, fourth and higher order are derived and the results are collected in tabular form for quick reference. The results and the methods suggested for their derivation are of importance in solving electromagnetic field problems associated with various linear (bi-anisotropic) media.
