This chapter presents rigorous mathematical results concerning the solvability and well posedness of time-harmonic problems for complex electromagnetic media, with a special emphasis on chiral media. It also presents some results concerning eigenvalue problems in cavities filled with complex electromagnetic materials. The chapter also studies the behaviour of the interior domain problem for a chiral medium in the limit of low chirality. Next, it presents some comments related to the well posedness and solvability of exterior problems. Finally, using an appropriate finite-dimensional space and the variational formulation of the discretised version of the original boundary value problem, this chapter obtains numerical methods for the solution of the Maxwell equations for chiral media.
Keywords: well posedness, time-harmonic problems, chiral media, solvability, eigenvalue problems, interior domain problem, exterior problems, finite-dimensional space, variational formulation, boundary value problem
