On the form of constitutive equations in electrodynamics


Institute for Theoretical and Applied Electrodynamics, Russian Academy of Sciences, ul. Izhorskaya 13/19, Moscow, 127412, Russian Federation

A comparative analysis of various forms of the Maxwell equations for condensed matter is presented. It is shown that the so-called Casimir form contains enough information to solve any electromagnetic problem. The Landau-Lifshitz form intended for describing media with spatial dispersion requires an additional constitutive equation for the surface current, which does not set an additional boundary condition but acts as a replacement of usual Maxwell’s continuity conditions for tangential field components.
