## Essays on the Formal Aspects of Electromagnetic TheoryAkhlesh Lakhtakia World Scientific, 1993 - 796 síður The book deals with formal aspects of electromagnetic theory from the classical, the semiclassical and the quantum viewpoints in essays written by internationally distinguished scholars from several countries. The fundamental basis of electromagnetic theory is examined in order to elucidate Maxwell's equations, identify problematic aspects as well as outstanding problems, suggest ways and means of overcoming the obstacles, and review existing literature.This book will be especially valuable for those who wish to go in depth, rather than simply use Maxwell's equations for the solution of engineering problems. Graduate students will find it rich in dissertation topics, and advanced researchers will relish the controversial and detailed arguments and models. |
