The mixing formulas for calculating the effective parameters of composite materials with inclusions having a negative permeability or permittivity are analyzed. The problems appearing when various formulas are utilized were outlined, and the computation algorithms yielding physically meaningful solutions were described. The problem of the calculation of a refractive index for media with arbitrary values of permittivity and permeability is discussed.
