On the 70th anniversary of the Leontovich boundary condition (comments on “Generalization of the Leontovich approximation for electromagnetic fields on a dielectric — metal interface” by V I Alshits and V N Lyubimov)


Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Bolshaya Gruzinskaya ul. 10, Moscow, 123995, Russian Federation

The question of Leontovich’s 70-year old boundary condition at the surface of a well conducting body is discussed. Doubt is cast on the assertion by Alshits and Lyubimov (Usp. Fiz. Nauk 179 865 (2009) [Phys. Usp. 52 815 (2009)]) that this boundary condition is more accurate than Leontovich himself believed. The 1940 paper by Rytov written on the suggestion of Leontovich is indicated as evidence for the latter’s full awareness of exactly how accurate his proposed boundary condition was.
