## Electrodynamics of continuous mediaCovers 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. |

In our case there must be an infinity of vectors s

n = nN ; hence the points on the ray surface which represent these vectors s must

lie in one tangent plane, which is perpendicular to nN . Thus in Fig. 55 the ...
