Abstract : Certain general problems in the theory of electromagnetic surface waves related to the impedance description of the guiding properties of interfaces are reviewed. The surface impedance may have spatial dispersion, i. e., and may depend on the structure of the field which it determines. The value of such a description is demonstrated for the study of free waves and for the solution of the problem of surface field excitation by means of various sources (including diffraction). Only those studies are discussed that deal directly with the use of the surface impedance concept. The appended bibliography is more complete: it contains references to nearly all the main articles on electromagnetic surface waves which have been published during the last few years. (Author)
