Abstract : We prove the existence of transmission eigenvalues corresponding to the inverse scattering problem for isotropic and anisotropic media for both scalar Helmholtz equation and Maxwell's equations. Considering a generalized abstract eigenvalue problem, we are able to extend the ideas of Päivärinta and Sylvester to prove the existence of transmission eigenvalues for a larger class of interior transmission problems. Our analysis includes both the case of a medium with positive contrast and of a medium with negative contrast provided that this contrast is large enough.
