# Singular behaviour of electric and magnetic fields in dielectric media in a nonlinear gravitational wave background

@article{Balakin2001SingularBO, title={Singular behaviour of electric and magnetic fields in dielectric media in a nonlinear gravitational wave background}, author={Alexander B. Balakin and Jos{\'e} P. S. Lemos}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2001}, volume={18}, pages={941-953} }

Evolution of electric and magnetic fields in dielectric media, driven by the influence of a strong gravitational wave, is considered for four exactly integrable models. It is shown that the gravitational wave field gives rise to new effects and to singular behaviour in the electromagnetic field.
