The authors largely concentrate on `effective' materials as opposed to `equivalent' materials, and emphasize the fundamental (but sometimes overlooked) differences between these two categories of homogenized composite materials. The properties of an `effective' material represents those of its composite material, regardless of the geometry and dimensions of the bulk materials and regardless of the orientations and polarization states of the illuminating electromagnetic fields. In contrast, the properties of `equivalent' materials only represent those of their corresponding composite materials under certain restrictive circumstances.
