This is the central assumption of geometrical optics and requires that the wavelength is short in comparison with all of the following lengths:  distance between the source and the first interactions along each ray path;  distance between individual interactions;  dimensions of any of the individual materials. Step 3 similarly requires that the curvature of any of the boundaries is not too large compared with the wavelength. Despite these limitations, geometrical optics is useful for solving a large number of highfrequency problems in both antennas and propagation with reasonable accuracy.

Are unit vectors parallel and normal to the scattering plane, respectively, and the incident electric field is permitted to take any polarisation state expressed as Ei ¼ Eijj ajj þ Ei? a? 1 ð3:8Þ Imagine a person walking across a beach into the sea at an angle, with the sea to their left. Their left leg gets wet first and slows down, causing their direction to shift more directly into the sea, closer to the normal to the sea edge. In this analogy the sea represents the denser medium and the beach is the less dense.
