## 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. |

Since the components y, a are transformed as the products x,x*x, the only non-

**zero**components are those with three different suffixes: y,..., y, x, y, x. (The othernon-

**zero**components are equal to these, since Y, a = 7.1.) Accordingly, the ... Page 72
