Table of Contents

(partial) Preface to the second edition. Preface to the first English edition. Notation. Electrostatics of conductors. Electrostatics of dielectrics. Steady current. Static magnetic field. Ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism. Superconductivity. Quasi-static electromagnetic field. Magnetohydrodynamics. The electromagnetic wave equations. The propagation of electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic waves in anisotropic media. Spatial dispersion. Non-linear optics. The passage of fast particles through matter. Scattering of electromagnetic waves. Diffraction of X-rays in crystals.


Covers the theory of electromagnetic fields in matter, and the theory of the 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 theory of optical phenomena with new chapters on spatial dispersion and non-linear optics. The chapters on ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism and on magnetohydrodynamics have been substantially enlarged and eight other chapters have additional sections.


Of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and research workers in theoretical physics and scientists in general interested in electrodynamics.
