On Media Capable of Electromagnetic Phenomena from the Eulerian Point of View. Magneto-Elastic Waves in Ideal Conductors

  • Aldo Bressan
Part of the Springer Tracts in Natural Philosophy book series (STPHI, volume 29)


The first medium we consider is a black body. We use it to show why we prefer \( {\theta _\alpha } = {T_{\frac{1}{{\left| \alpha \right.}}}} + T{A_\alpha }to{T_{\frac{1}{{\left| \alpha \right.}}}} \) in relativistic versions of the Fourier law. In § 46, [§ 47] we lay down the foundations of a theory for electrically and magnetically polarizable fluids in the absence [presence] of viscosity. Lastly we take into account ideal conductors and after a few considerations (including dynamic equations) which hold for materials of any kind, we restrict ourselves to (possibly polarizable) non-viscous ideal fluids, and we deal with magneto-elastic waves (in particular Alfvén waves). The same waves in general magneto-elastic materials, and certain constancy properties for ideal conductors of any kind, will be presented in Chapter 8.
