About this book

This book presents a sequential representation of the electrodynamics of conducting media with dispersion. In addition to the general electrodynamic formalism, specific media such as classical nondegenerate plasma, degenerate metal plasma, magnetoactive anisotropic plasma, atomic hydrogen gas, semiconductors, and molecular crystals are considered.
The book draws on such classics as Electrodynamics of plasma and plasma-like media (Silin and Rukhadze) and Principles of Plasma Electrodynamics (Alexandrov, Bogdankevich, and Rukhadze), yet its outlook is thoroughly modern—both in content and presentation, including both classical and quantum approaches. It explores such recent topics as surface waves on thin layers of plasma and non-dispersive media, the permittivity of a monatomic gas with spatial dispersion, and current-driven instabilities in plasma, among many others. Each chapter is equipped with a large number of problems with solutions that have academic and practical importance. This book will appeal to graduate students as well as researchers and other professionals due to its straight-forward yet thorough treatment of electrodynamics in conducting dispersive media.

About the authors

Professor in physics of the Shahid Beheshti University, Babak Shokri was born in 1965 in Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran. He received his PhD degree from the General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy in Moscow under the supervision of A. A. Rukhadze in 1997. He has been working as a faculty member in the physics department and Laser-Plasma Research Institute of Shahid Beheshti University since 1998. Furthermore he worked as a visiting professor in Alberta University and Manchester University in 2003 and 2007, respectively. He is the author of more than 200 papers in pre-reviewed journals. Furthermore, he won the Khwarizmi International Award in 2006. He was honored two times as the outstanding researcher of Islamic Republic of Iran in 2004 and 2006. The domain of his interest is rather wide and covers theoretical and experimental physics including electrodynamics of dispersion media, laser-plasma interaction, accelerator’s physics, PECVD, Plasma MW electronics, plasma engineering and plasma applications in industry and medicine.
Rukhadze Anri Amvrosievich holds a Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, chief research associate of the General Physics Institute of A.M. Prokhorov of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor of the Physics Department of the Moscow State University and the Physico-Technical Institute (Technical University), graduated with honors from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (MEPhI) in 1954. He has published more than 600 published scientific papers, 60 reviews and 10 scientific monographs. He is the member of the editorial board "Applied Physics", "Successes of Applied Physics", "Brief Communications on Physics of the Lebedev Physical Institute", "Applied Physics and Mathematics" and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Engineering Physics. He was repeatedly awarded with government awards, including the Order of Honor, the Order of the Red Banner of Labor, Order of Prokhorov, and twice the State Prize and the Prize of M.V. Lomonosov. He was honored Worker of Science of Russia. His scientific interests include kinetics and physical electronics, quantum and classical electrodynamics. He passed away in March 2018.
