A new effective analytical approach to describing electromagnetic waves in nonmagnetic anisotropic media is proposed. An analytical description of the refraction and reflection at an interface between isotropic and anisotropic media is demonstrated. Beam splitting upon reflection and refraction is reviewed, and surface wave generation is examined. D’yakonov surface waves and methods of their observation are discussed. Analytical and numerical calculations of the reflection and transmission of plane-parallel uniaxial plates are outlined.
