Electrodynamics of Continuous Media
- L D Landau
- L. P. Pitaevskii
- E.M. Lifshitz
Covers the theory of electromagnetic fields in matter, and the theory of macroscopic electric and magnetic properties of matter. There is a considerable amount of new material particularly on the theory of the magnetic properties of matter and the theoryof optical phenomena with new chapters on spatial dispersion and non-linear optics.
For undergraduates, postgraduates and research workers in theoretical physics and scientists interested in electrodynamics.
