Abstract

The positive conclusion on the recognizable existence of the Tellegen parameter, which invalidates the Post constraint, arrived at in the Comment of Sihvola and Tretyakov through the solution of a boundary-value problem relies on a framework of macroscopic electromagnetism that lacks a microscopic basis. But the microscopic viewpoint underlying the framework of modern macroscopic electromagnetism invalidates the boundary conditions used therein, and instead validates the Post constraint.
