Abstract

A solution is given for the boundary value problem of a wave propagating along a thin wire parallel to the interface between two homogeneous half-spaces. A general modal equation is derived for the propagation constant of the transmission current on the wire. It is shown how this result reduces to earlier known solutions obtained under more restrictive conditions.
