1. Technical and scientific conferences reflect the research and develop ment work that is being performed within the field. To convince oneself about the fact that chiral and bi-isotropic media are a hot topic of today's enginwing and science, one might check the proceedings of conferences like IEEE Antennas and Propagation Symposium, Progress in Electromagnetics Research, and URSI Commission B (Elwtromagnetic Theory) Meeting. Monographies covering electromagnetics in chiral materials are more scarce, , Lakhtakia, A., V. K. Varadan, and V. V. Varadan, ``Time-hamonic electromagnetic fields in chiral media,'' Lecture Notes in Physics, 335, Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1989; Lindell, I. V., A. H. Sihvola, S. A. Tretyakov, and A. J.
