** Previous:** 6.2.1 First Maxwell Equation

In an exactly analogous way the components of the second Maxwell equation are
first written explicitly:
and then transformed into the frequency domain. This yields two coupled
ODEs for the lateral electric field coefficients
*E*_{x, nm}(*z*)
and
*E*_{y, nm}(*z*) as well as one analytical expression for the vertical magnetic
field coefficients
*H*_{z, nm}(*z*):
