The purpose of this appendix is to collect some of the quantities related to propagation of electromagnetic waves and provide definitions to the important quantities that are used in this work. It is of course not possible to deal with the whole theory of electromagnetics nor there is a need for that. It is assumed the reader is familiar with most of the concepts, but there is still value in collecting together these concepts. The reader will, of course, have to refer to more extensive exposition of electromagnetics for the details of the relations given here and for any extension of the concepts beyond the scope of the present work.
