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 theory of 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.
Electrostatics of conductors; Static magnetic field; Superconductivity; The propagation of electromagnetic waves; Spatial dispersion; Diffraction of X rays in crystals.
