Title: geometric optics and WKB method for electromagnetic wave propagation in an inhomogeneous plasma near cutoff

Abstract

This report outlines the theory underlying electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation in an unmagnetized, inhomogeneous plasma. The inhomogeneity is given by a spatially nonuniform plasma electron density n e(r), which will modify the wave propagation in the direction of the gradient rn e(r).
