[1] The exact computation, the exact modeling of the propagation of electromagnetic signals through inhomogeneous moving media, is an old theoretical and measuring/data interpretation problem, because in a lot of practical problems, such as the accurate space-time determination in satellite positioning systems, the occultation measurements, or the accurate tracking of the interplanetary probes, the electromagnetic wave (signal) traverses moving, inhomogeneous media, where the moving velocity of the media and the media itself are inhomogeneous in space, i.e., the Earth's high and low atmosphere, the planetary atmospheres, the interplanetary matter in the inner and outer solar system, etc. In other important cases of electromagnetic wave propagation, as the propagation in inhomogeneous media or the propagation of short impulses (ultrawide-band (UWB) signals), the application of the method of inhomogeneous basic modes (MIBM) was successful. In this paper it is demonstrated that the application of MIBM in the case of inhomogeneous moving media produces an exact, full-wave solution of monochromatic or UWB signals propagating through these media. The solutions are valid inside the special relativity.

[2] The correct description, the correct modeling of the propagation of monochromatic, quasi-monochromatic or ultrawide-band (UWB, arbitrary shaped) signals in inhomogeneous and moving media has a basic importance in space experiments, in Earth investigations, in astronomical research, in wireless communications and in some other applications. To reach this goal, i.e., to the correct description of this propagation problem, it is necessary to have a real, full-wave solution of Maxwell's equations in moving, inhomogeneous media. However, in earlier approximations this full-wave solution was not presented.

[3] Measurements in communication investigations, in space research and in radio astronomical experiments [e.g., *Adam*, 1948; *Birkemeier et al.*, 1968; *Bird*, 1976; *Goldstein*, 1969; *Higgs*, 1960; *Jacobs and Watanabe*, 1966; *Sadeh et al.*, 1968; *Woo et al.*, 1976] demonstrated the importance of a complete full-wave solution, and in this moment it is impossible to exclude that the effects caused by the signal propagation through the interplanetary, moving, inhomogeneous media in the outer solar system from the spacecrafts to the Earth has an important role in the “Pioneer anomaly” [see, e.g., *Anderson et al.*, 1998]. To clarify the possible role of different factors in these measurements it is necessary to derive a correct, complete full-wave solution of Maxwell's equations in this important (special relativistic) case. An overview of the problems considering in these cases of wave propagation is given by *Ferencz* [1979]. The investigation of the frequency shift and line broadening with limited accuracy was applied earlier in a ray-tracing approximation for the quasi-monochromatic signals, the “relativistic ray tracing” [*Ferencz*, 1980a], some results on the interpretation of measured data are given by *Ferencz* [1980b]. Some results of the application of the classic scattering theory on the interpretation of data measured in terrestrial communication experiments are given by *Birkemeier et al.* [1968]. A method was developed for the investigation of the rotation of the signal polarization [*Ferencz*, 1978a, 1978b] but without the derivation of a complete full-wave solution. The determination of the complete, full-wave signal form propagating through these complex moving media when the signals are monochromatic or have arbitrary shape and the result must be valid inside the special relativity, i.e., the moving velocity of the media comparing to the observer is not very small, has not yet been solved.

[4] In some practical applications, such as in the detection of rotating rocket bodies in missile defense tasks or in stealth technology, the effects caused by moving and rotating targets are important. Therefore the investigation of the effects appearing on the signals propagating, reflecting or scattering in moving complex media is very actual. Some works have been made recently in this field [e.g., *Li et al.*, 2010; *Qiu et al.*, 2008; *Zhang et al.*, 2009]. In these works the definite main goal was the determination of the Doppler frequency shift and line broadening in the case of real man-made targets and by using monochromatic (or quasi-monochromatic, i.e., radar type) source signals or excitation. Therefore in these very well based works the motion of the medium, the motion or spinning of the targets have low speed comparing to the velocity of the light (*c*), and no real UWB solution was needed. For example, in the work by *Zhang et al.* [2009] the description of the Doppler effect has a classic, nonrelativistic form and the spinning rate in the example is around 0.5 Hz, which is a high spinning rate in practice, but it is low speed comparing to the speed of light. In this case the goal is not the derivation of the propagating complete waveform, however, the determination of the Doppler bandwidth caused by the spinning target. The situation of *Li et al.* [2010] is similar, in which the spinning speed remains in the <2 rad/s domain. In the work by *Qiu et al.* [2008] it is important that the target (the medium) is layered and complex (anisotropic, bianisotropic), and in this work the derivation of the waveform of the propagating, monochromatic-type signal is solved. However, the motion, the rotation velocity is limited also, it remains inside the classic, nonrelativistic domain. (Another common special aspect of these works is the fact, that if somebody will be close to higher velocities in these cases, then it will be necessary to use a general relativistic description because the rotating systems are noninertia, accelerating systems.) Therefore the determination of the monochromatic (quasi-monochromatic) or UWB signals propagating through complex, inhomogeneous media, which have (comparing to the velocity of light) high and inhomogeneous moving velocities in space and which have complex (anisotropic, bianisotropic) character, remained unsolved.

[5] In the last years, however, with the exclusion of the motion of the medium traversed by the propagating signals, it was possible to derive precise full-wave solutions of monochromatic and UWB signals from the Maxwell's equations [*Ferencz et al.*, 1996, 2001; *Ferencz*, 2005] with a lot of successful applications of these theoretical results mainly in space research [e.g., *Ferencz et al.*, 2001, 2007; *Lichtenberger*, 2009; *Ferencz et al.*, 2009]. The key step to derive these new solutions was the correct application of the method of inhomogeneous basic modes (MIBM) (see details given by *Ferencz* [1978c], *Ferencz et al.* [2001], *Ferencz* [2004], and *Ferencz* [2005]). A short summary of the MIBM is given in the Appendices A and B. The MIBM is based on the physical fact that it is sure that the final resultant signal, the complete signal, i.e., the sum of the “basic modes” (or any other sum or integral form of a solution) is a solution of the Maxwell's equations, however, these parts of the final resultant (e.g., an independent inhomogeneous basic mode, or the independent monochromatic components of a signal, which is written by Fourier series or Fourier integral) separately are not solutions and could not be solutions of the Maxwell's equations even if a medium is linear [*Ferencz*, 2004; *Ferencz*, 2005]. This was and is an important step in the derivation of new and correct propagation models because, citing Einstein's words: “Any serious consideration of a physical theory must take into account the distinction between the objective reality, which is independent of any theory, and the physical concepts with which the theory operates” [*Einstein et al.*, 1935].

[6] The physical concept of the MIBM was verified in the case of nonmoving, inhomogeneous media, of stratified media and of propagation of the arbitrary shaped, i.e., UWB, quasi-monochromatic and monochromatic signals. In the following we present an application of the MIBM in the case of propagation in inhomogeneous moving media in which the velocity field of the motion is varying in space too, however, it does not vary in time.

[7] We will use the well known and generally accepted formalism of the special relativity and the Lorentz transformation [see, e.g., *Laue*, 1955; *Synge*, 1965; *Schmutzer*, 1968]. Therefore let the *K*′ be the coordinate system comoving with the moving media at a given point. The media itself and the moving velocity distribution could be inhomogeneous in space respectively; however, they are constants in time in the comoving systems. Let us derive the electromagnetic signal at the receiver (sensor, observer) resting in the *K* laboratory coordinate system. The signal source (transmitter, etc.) could be comoving either with the *K*′ coordinate systems or with the *K* laboratory coordinate system. In the first case the first (initial) *K*′ system is defined as the comoving system with the signal source, independently from the moving of the media. The geometry is illustrated in Figure 1. Then we can use the Lorentz transformation as it is well known (see also Figure 2): The Lorentz transformation tensor is

if the axes of the *K*′ and *K* systems are parallel respectively, and the motion velocity of *K*′ in *K* is = (*v*, 0, 0), i.e., the velocity parallel with the *x*′ and *x* axes, *a* = *v*/*c* and *j* = .

[8] If the direction of is arbitrary, i.e., = (*v*_{1}, *v*_{2}, *v*_{3}), then the *v* value in *a* = *v*/*c* is

and

The formulas of the vector and tensor transformations using the *a*_{ik} transformation tensor are well known also, as follows:

Here it is true that *a*_{ri}*a*_{rk} = *δ*_{ik} and *a*_{ir}*a*_{kr} = *δ*_{ik}, where the *δ*_{ik} symbol is the Weierstrass *δ* - delta symbol, i.e., *δ*_{ik} = 0, if *i* ≠ *k*, and *δ*_{ik} = 1, if *i* = *k*.

[10] In the following we will use the well known four-dimensional formalism and in this case we shall use the four-dimensional electromagnetic tensor symbolism as it is known [see, e.g., *Synge*, 1965; *Schmutzer*, 1968]. If the electromagnetic tensors are

then the form of the Maxwell's equations is in general, special relativistic form including every effects of the motion

which is valid in every comoving or non comoving, inertia coordinate systems, and where *σ*_{i} is the four-dimensional current density

In (6) *J*_{i} are the components of the complete three-dimensional current density and *ρ* is the electric charge density. The *F*_{ik} *G*_{ik} relation is defined by the constitutive relations in known manner in the coordinate systems comoving with the media, and in very complex form or it is not known, if the coordinate system is not comoving with the medium [see, e.g., *Marx*, 1952, 1953; *Ferencz*, 1979].

[11] It is well known that depending only on our decision it is possible to incorporate the effects of all charge motions, of all signal-medium interactions into the current density and charge, i.e., into the four-dimensional current density, and in this case *F*_{ik} ≡ *G*_{ik}. As it is known the signal-medium interaction contains the currents induced by the electromagnetic field in the medium, the circular currents induced by the electromagnetic field in the medium, the charge harmonic oscillations, i.e., the polarization effects caused by the electromagnetic field, etc., and the excitation signals, which generate the electromagnetic field. In this case all of these effects appear in the *σ*_{i}, which *σ*_{i} in this case naturally differs from the *σ*_{i} in (5). Then we can write the Maxwell's equations in a modified form, i.e.

We will use these equivalent formulas in the following derivations, first the equation system (7) and in the second case the equation system (5). We shall use these two derivations, because it is well known that the derivation of the medium-signal interactions in the *K* laboratory coordinate system is very problematic in the case of complex media [see, e.g., *Marx*, 1952, 1953; *Kong*, 1975]. However, the MIBM will produce a simple solution of this problem in which it is not necessary to derive the constitutive relations of the moving media in the *K* laboratory coordinate system.

[25] In some cases it is not convenient to incorporate every medium-signal interactions into the four-dimensional current density (i.e., field induced currents, circular currents, polarization effects, etc., together with the excitation, source signal). In these cases it is better to start by using (5). The general structure of the propagation is unchanged, it is given in Figures 1 and 2 and however, the value of *σ*_{i} current density differs from the value of *σ*_{i} appearing in (7). Therefore

where

Applying (22) in system *K*, the form of the Maxwell's equations will be

[26] In the homogeneous case, when the medium is homogeneous and time-invariant in the coordinate system *K*′, and the moving velocity of the medium is homogeneous, i.e., uniform and time-invariant—using the derivation presented in section 3.1—we obtain the forms of equations (23) as

and from (24) by using (12), etc., it follows that

in the *K*′ system in these cases. We will use the equations (24) in the definition of the inhomogeneous basic modes, as it was made in section 3.3, too.

#### 4.1. The General (Inhomogeneous) Case Using Equation (5)

[27] In the same manner as we showed earlier in section 3.2 it is possible to derive from (23) that

Let us define the inhomogeneous basic modes in a similar manner as it was done in section 3.3. In this case this means that the inhomogeneous basic modes will be the solutions of the equation system

i.e., the inhomogeneous basic modes from *m* = 1 to *m* = *M* are the solutions of

valid in the *K*′ comoving coordinate systems. Therefore it is not necessary to know or to derive the *F*_{ik} *G*_{ik} constitutive equations or relations in the *K* laboratory system (in the system of the observer), it is enough to know these relations in the comoving systems *K*′, which means the application of the classic forms knowing in resting media.

[28] Knowing the inhomogeneous basic modes derived by (28) in *K*′, it is possible to say that the complete solutions of the Maxwell's equations are

Therefore the coupling equations in this case, derived by identical manner as it was done in section 3.4, are the following

[29] It is clear that in relativistic formalism the definition of the permittivity, permeability, conductivity, etc., is very complicate [*Marx*, 1952, 1953] even in the cases of a single, strictly monochromatic signal except in the *K*′ system comoving with the medium, and it is not possible to define these relations in the cases of the UWB or general shaped signals even in comoving systems too [*Ferencz et al.*, 2001]. However, using this method it is enough to know these relations in the systems comoving with the media or to use the derivation methods applicable in *K*′ system to derive the electromagnetic field components, as it is clear from (20) and (30). If we know the *F*′_{ik} *G*′_{ik} relations, it is possible to solve (17) or (28), and the solution of the coupling equations (20) or (30) produces the solution of the problem, and it is not necessary to know or to use any hypothetical or well derived, but very complicated *F*_{ik} *G*_{ik} relations (see, e.g., *Marx* [1953] for an example of these very complicated relations).

[32] In this case the velocity of the inhomogeneous medium is changing in space continuously, i.e., the derivatives of *a*_{ik} are limited, the Dirac-delta operator will not appear between the derivatives of *a*_{ik}. However, it is important that this velocity field, which is changing in space, is constant in time and therefore the criteria of the inertia systems is valid for the *K*′ systems, comoving in every point with this media. Therefore the form of the individual members in (20) or (30) will be the following:

where *a*_{ri}^{−1} and *a*_{sk}^{−1} are the inverses of *a*_{ri} and *a*_{sk}. Thus

Therefore the form of the coupling equations (30) is

[33] It was clarified in section 3.3 that the inhomogeneous basic modes exist in given points in *K*′ (or in equivalent points in *K*) and the completeness of the Maxwell's equations guarantees that in every point (or surface, etc.) we shall have only such number of independent inhomogeneous basic modes which is necessary to derive a complete solution. Therefore we shall have a point-by-point changing set of inhomogeneous basic modes with enough and only enough free parameters in every points in the coupling equations and the coupling equations guarantee through the coupling (and fixing) these free parameters that the (dispersive or nondispersive, inhomogeneous) medium-signal interaction will happen with the real (correct) parameters (e.g., frequency) in every points, in every *K*′ systems.

[34] Let the application example be the propagation in the moving (windy) troposphere, described by *Birkemeier et al.* [1968] and later, e.g., by *Ferencz* [1980b]. This is a very well measured and widely investigated propagation case, and beside these the propagation geometry is simple, therefore it is a good demonstration of the practical applications. (It was investigated earlier by scattering theory and by relativistic ray tracing.) We will use MKSA system in this section, because it is better suited for practical example, however, it is important to remember that the coupling equations in the given form are valid in cgs. The simplified sketch of the propagation in a stratified troposphere model is given in Figure 4. In this case the model has two layers. The first layer (circled numeral 1) is the reference, i.e., this (ɛ_{0}, *μ*_{0}) medium is resting in laboratory system *K*, and the second layer is moving with _{2} = *v* · _{1} velocity, where *v* = constant. In this simple model the medium 1 is homogeneous; however, the medium 2 is inhomogeneous. Let the source signal be monochromatic.

[35] The steps of the derivation of the solution are as follows:

[36] 1. Derivation of all inhomogeneous basic modes by applying (28) in the comoving coordinate systems, which have the most optimal orientation to the solution of (28) in the given case of the boundary surface *A*_{2} and the propagation through medium 2. These are well known derivations in the classic wave theory.

[37] 2. Transformation of the derived inhomogeneous basic modes into the comoving systems *K*′ and *K*, respectively. After these rotations of coordinate systems the forms of the derived inhomogeneous basic modes will be compatible with the assumptions used during the derivation of the coupling equations (30), or in this case (39). (The rotations of the coordinate systems are also trivial.)

[38] 3. In last step it is possible to solve the coupling equations (39) and to derive the received wave parameters, e.g., the received signal frequency in this case of application [see, e.g., *Birkemeier at al*., 1968].

[39] Therefore in first step we can write the solution of (28) as it is well known, in homogeneous parts of the layers in the form

in a comoving system, which is fitted to the propagation plane wave in well known manner. (Here *E*_{0} and *H*_{0} are the electric and magnetic amplitudes of the electromagnetic field, respectively, *ω* is the angular frequency, is the three-dimensional propagation factor, *ξ* is the x-component of the propagation factor, and *Z*_{0} is the wave impedance of the medium. In the inhomogeneous parts of the individual layers we can derive the solutions by the method given by *Ferencz* [2004] for monochromatic waves. A consequence of the earlier steps is the fact, that it is necessary to rotate these comoving systems into the comoving systems *K*′ which are defined in Figures 1 and 2. In (42)

therefore

and

where *c* is the velocity of light in vacuum, *Z*_{00} is the wave impedance of the vacuum and *n* is the refraction index in comoving system. Because (42) is written in MKSA unit system, therefore to the application of these results in (3), (5) or (7) and therefore in the coupling equations, it is necessary to make a well known unit transformation, i.e.

in our example, where the index MKSA means the values derived by equations valid in MKSA unit system.

[40] In the given model (Figure 4) the Dirac-delta operators in the coupling equations produce two groups of coupling equations (39). The first group is connected to the excitation signal coming from the transmitter to the surface *A*_{2} and the second group is connected to the signal propagating after the traversing of the inhomogeneity in layer 2 and propagating toward the *A*_{2} (and after crossing *A*_{2} toward the receiver).

[41] Looking at the structure of the equation system (39) or (38) it is clear that in monochromatic cases this equation structure guarantees the phase invariance [e.g., *Synge*, 1965; *Schmutzer*, 1968] of the complete wave pattern. In the measurements of *Birkemeier et al.* [1968] the goal was the investigation of the frequency shift of the monochromatic signal during the propagation. To the derivation of the complete frequency shift in this simple model (in our case) it is enough to derive the frequency shift of the signal reaching the receiver (Figure 4) from the complete phase pattern of the inhomogeneous basic modes coupled by the equations (39) in the model given in Figure 4. The result of this derivation is

where *ω*_{0} = 2*πf*_{0}, and *f*_{0} is the excitation signal frequency at the transmitter, which was 810 MHz and 960 MHz in the given experiments depending on the direction of the transmission between the two end of the transmitting path, κ ≅ *k*_{0}*n*cos*α*_{1}, ϕ_{0} is the antenna pointing angle given in Figure 4, similarly Θ_{0} and *α*_{1} are also given in Figure 4; and we can done usual simplifications in the calculations of the angles in *K*′ systems because in this case the wind velocity is *v* ≪ *c*. Beside these

Using the assumptions that *v* ≪ *c* and computing the Taylor series of (45), the relative frequency shift is computable and it is e.g., in third order approximation in the Taylor series

where *C*_{1}, *C*_{3}, etc. are constants and *α*_{1} is small. The model (46) is usable in the interpretation of measured data presented by *Birkemeier et al.* [1968] (see also Figures 5 and 6). These data were interpreted by *Birkemeier et al.* [1968] using a correct signal scattering model in which the signal is scattered by moving particles. But the model (46) describes the signal propagation through this moving media, too. The equation (46) contains only the odd members of the Taylor series, which is compatible with the measured Δ*f* ϕ_{0} curves. See *Birkemeier et al.* [1968] and *Ferencz* [1980b] for more.

[42] However, in (46) a new member appears, a general frequency shift which is independent of the antenna pointing angle ϕ_{0}, but it depends on *α*_{1} elevation. In these measurements with the usual wind velocities this *α*_{1}*n* · *v*/*c* factor is very small, but it is identifiable in more measured curves in the very small shifting of the frequency above the Δ*f* = 0 line at the ϕ_{0} = 0 value. The wind velocities were in the 1 m/s ≤ *v* ≤ 15 m/s region, the refraction coefficient of the inhomogeneities of the troposphere along the propagation path was around 1.2, i.e., 1.05 < *n* < 2, and *α*_{1} of the antenna was maximum a few grads (applying a slightly curved Earth surface contour), remains below 20°, i.e., in 0.017 ≤ *α*_{1} ≤ 0.25 domain in radians. Using these parameters in (46) this additional frequency shift is very small, it is a Δ*f* < 0.05 ∼ 0.1 Hz shifting of the frequency curves above the Δ*f* = 0 line at the ϕ_{0} = 0. (Using this value in (46) it is possible to produce an estimation of the measured data (Figure 7), as an illustration of practical possibilities.)

[43] With the application of the MIBM, it is possible to derive a complete and exact full wave solution of Maxwell's equations in moving, inhomogeneous media. It is an important fact, that it is not necessary to know or to derive the *F*_{ik} *G*_{ik} relations in the *K* laboratory system, however, it is enough to know these relations in the *K*′ comoving systems, i.e., it is enough to know and to apply the classic *F*′_{ik} *G*′_{ik} forms of these relations.

[44] The method is applicable for monochromatic, quasi-monochromatic and for general shaped UWB signals, and for simple and complex (anisotropic, bianisotropic, etc.) media.

[45] These solutions are valid if the velocity field of the media is constant; therefore the coordinate systems fixed to the observer or to the moving media are nonaccelerating, inertia systems, i.e., inside the validity of the special relativity. In the method we did not used any restrictions of the value of the velocity in the 0 < *v* < *c* range.

[46] It seems to be necessary a further detailed investigation with the comparison of the models using stratified velocity field description and using continuously varying velocity field description. The form of the derivatives appearing in the case in which the velocity field varies continuously in space has similar character as the derivatives appeared in the case of the general relativity.

[47] It is necessary to generalize the solution method to the cases appearing inside the validity of the general relativity.
