## The Enigmatic Photon, Volume 1This book is the first of two volumes devoted to the photon. Volume 1 presents the first systematic development of the fundamental magnetizing field of electromagnetic radiation: the field £Ii£3. The book has 12 chapters which collectively describe the properties of £Ii£3 in a vacuum and in the interaction of light with matter. Volume 2 deals with the development of non-Abelian, or O(3), electrodynamics in which £Ii£3 is incorporated systematically. For researchers and graduate students interested in the theory of electromagnetic radiation. |
