The linear surface and waveguide modes of trans-verse magnetic polarization propagating in the plate of the layered superconductor placed in a homogeneous dielectric environment are theoretically studied. It is assumed that the superconducting layers are orthogonal to the plate surface and the waves propagate across the layers. The dispersion relations for the symmetric and antisymmetric modes by the magnetic field are derived. It is shown that the dispersion of these modes is anomalous in a certain range of frequencies and wave numbers. The conditions of vanishing the mode group velocity are found.
