## Electrodynamics of Continuous MediaCovers 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. |

The components nx and ny of the

**wave**vector are unaltered by refraction. In the**incident**ray they are nx = sin 6, ny = 0. Substituting these values in (1), we findthe x and y components of the unit vector s/s, which give immediately the
