Abstract : We consider a chiral medium in a bounded domain, enclosed in a perfectly conducting material. We solve the transient Maxwell equations in this domain, when the medium is modeled by the Drude-Born-Fedorov constitutive equations. The input data is located on the boundary, in the form of given surface current and surface charge densities. It is proved that, except for a countable set of chirality admittance values, the problem is mathematically well-posed. This result holds for domains with non-smooth boundaries. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
