Based on the Maxwell Garnett (MG) formalism for homogenizing particulate composite media, an incremental MG (IMG) formalism is developed. Whereas the MG formalism is suitable for dilute composite media, the IMG formalism is phenomenologically valid even for dense composite media because it homogenizes incrementally over a succession of several intermediate dilute composite media. IMG algorithms are presented for the simple dielectric-in-dielectric, as well as the complicated bianisotropic-in-bianisotropic composite media.
