The frequency-dependent constitutive relations of a simple symmetric bianisotropic medium (SSBM) are stated as D = A·(εE - βH) and B = A·(βE + μH), where A is a real symmetric dyadic. After an affine transformation is used, expressions for the fields in the source regions are derived for this medium. The obtained results may be used to determine the scattering response of an electrically small bianisotropic particle embedded in a SSBM, and can therefore also be used to homogenize a wide class of particulate composites.
