Classical electromagnetic potential formulations are, with the exceptions of a few special cases of one-dimensional stratification, restricted to use in uniform media. A recently developed potential formulation that provides a flexible basis for numerical computation of time-harmonic field problems involving continuously and discretely inhomogeneous axially symmetric media is the topic of this paper. The formulation manifests itself in both a differential equation system and, alternately, a variational criterion. Typical numerical applications include solutions of scattering by arbitrarily shaped material bodies of revolution and radiation from inhomogeneously loaded rotationally symmetric antenna structures. Current numerical investigations by the authors, using Mei’s unimoment method in conjunction with both finite-difference and finite-element techniques, have shown the formulation to be highly feasible for computation of field problems having dimensions as large as several wavelengths.
