The frequently used Maxwell equations that contain E, B, D and H fields are only substantiated in the framework of linear material equations and for isotropic media alone. We have shown that the account of the deviation of magnetic permittivity $\mu(\omega)$ verse waves only exist in the energy region where $\epsilon(\omega)$ and have a positive group velocity.
