Abstract : The use of refractive index diagrams in the study of plane wave propagation in unbounded and layered anisotropic media is reviewed and then extended to account for certain aspects of the radiation from confined source distributions. Such items as the radiation condition, saddle point location, focusing effects, lateral ray trajectories, Cerenkov radiation, and others are interpreted via the refractive index plots. While some of this material is available in various technical publications, the aim here is at a more unified presentation. (Author)
