triply asymmetric problem, Airy pulse, inhomogeneous medium, time-varying medium


Transformation of an electromagnetic pulse in a triply asymmetric electrodynamic problem is considered: transformation of an initial asymmetric Airy pulse on a boundary between two dielectric medium in one of which the refractive index changes in time by jump.
