Abstract

The paper reviews some topics in human exposure to high frequency (HF) electromagnetic fields based on certain integral equation formulations and related numerical solution procedures. Illustrative computational examples are related to the human eye and the human brain exposed to HF radiation. The obtained numerical results for specific absorption rate (SAR) are compared against exposure limits proposed by ICNIRP (International Commission on Non Ionizing Radiation Protection).
