wavenum(er, mr, sigma, f)
% wavenum.m - calculate wavenumber and characteristic impedance
%
% Usage:k [kc, etac] = wavenum(er, mr, sigma, f)
%
% er,mr = relative epsilon and mu
% sigma = conductivity in S/m
% f     = frequency in Hz
%
% kc   = wavenumber
% etac = characteristic impedance
%
% kc = w * sqrt(mu*ep) * (1 - j*sigma/w*ep)^(1/2) = beta - j* alpha
% etac = sqrt(mu/ep) * (1 - j*sigma/w*ep)^(-1/2)
