## 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. |

position of the ferroelectric axis, which we take as the z-axis, is uniquely

determined.
