The article presents the authors' views on the inclusion of displacement current in the equation they have arrived with regarding helicon waves. They stated that the term is insignificant when other terms in the equation are taken into consideration. It is further clarified that the point of the study is to come up with an equation for annular boundary conditions that can be applied in antenna design.
