Electromagnetism in Matter
Let S be a continuous system, and let C(t) be the region occupied by S at the instant t. Generally, C(t) is the union of the disjoint regions C 1 (t),…, C ν (t), and S exhibits the same physical properties in each of these regions. For instance, if S consists of two adjacent dielectrics occupying the regions C 1 (t) and C 2 (t) in the presence of a fixed conductor of volume C 3, then we have C(t) = C 1 (t)∪ C 2 (t)∪C 3 ∪C 4 (t), where C 4 (t) is the space around the dielectrics and the conductor.
