	%X In this paper, a novel wave equation for electromagnetic
waves in a medium having anisotropic permittivity has been derived
with the help of Maxwell-s curl equations. The x and y components
of the Maxwell-s equations are written with the permittivity () being
a 3 × 3 symmetric matrix. These equations are solved for Ex , Ey,
Hx, Hy in terms of Ez, Hz, and the partial derivatives. The Z
components of the Maxwell-s curl are then used to arrive to the
generalized Helmholtz equations for Ez and Hz.
