## A development of the equations of electromagnetism in material continuaThe book derives the equations of electrostatics, magnetostatics and electromagnetics in material continua from the fundamental statements of Coulomb, Ampére, Faraday and Maxwell in a careful systematic way. The book is intended to provide graduate students in mechanics and applied mathematics, as well as faculty and appropriate research workers, with an understanding of electromagnetism and prepare them for studies on the interaction of the electric and magnetic fields with deformable solid continua. Unusually careful attention is given to the description of the stored electric and magnetic energies and the prescription for the body force exerted by the fields on the material continuum. Much of the approach to the development of the equations is original and more systematic and convincing than others. |
