The electromagnetic interactions with left-handed material (LHM) medium postulated by Veselago are examined within the framework of surface integral equations (SIEs) solved by the method of moments (MM). The formulations are given for a general medium and then specialized for cases of LHM media. The scattering, propagation and lensing through such media are investigated. The implications and limitations of using SIE/MM formulations for lossless LHM media are also explored.
