Date of Defense 2010-03-12 Availability unrestricted AbstractIn this thesis, a method is developed for obtaining convergent power series expansions for dispersion relations in two-dimensional periodic media with frequency dependent constitutive relations. The method is based on high-contrast expansions in the parameter = 2d=, where d is the period of the crystal cell and is the
wavelength. The radii of convergence obtained are not too small, on the order of 102. That the method applies to frequency dependent media is an important fact, since the majority of the methods available in the literature are restricted to frequency independent constitutive relations. The convergent series for the disper-
sion relation is used to define an effective property valid for finite cell structure
sizes, as opposed to a quasi-static property, valid only in the limit ! 0.
