Description of Electrodynamics of Continuous Media 2nd Edition

Electrodynamics of Continuous Media 2nd Edition written by L.D. Landau & E.M. Lifshitz is a great Electrodynamics book available in (PDF) download. THE present volume in the Course of Theoretical Physics deals with the theory of electromagnetic fields in matter and with the theory of the macroscopic electric and magnetic properties of matter. These theories include a very wide range of topics, as may be seen from the Contents.

In writing this book we have experienced considerable difficulties, partly because of the need to make a selection from the extensive existing material, and partly because the customary exposition of many topics to be included does not possess the necessary physical clarity, and sometimes is actually wrong. We realise that our own treatment still has many defects, which we hope to correct in future editions.

We are grateful to Professor V. L. GINZBURG, who read the Electrodynamics of Continuous Media book in manuscript and made some useful comments. I. E. DZYALOSHINSKII and L. P. PITAEVSKII gave great help in reading the proofs of the Russian edition. Thanks are due also to Dr SYKES and Dr BELL, who not only carried out excellently the arduous task of translating the book, but also made some useful comments concerning its contents.
