Abstract:

A comparison analysis of the Landau-Lifshitz and Casimir forms of the Maxwell equations in condensed media is made. It is shown that the Casimir form comprises sufficient information of the system to solve any electromagnetic problem whereas the Landau-Lifshitz form demands an additional constitutive equation for surface current. It is shown that the main difference in these forms is that the Casimir form being free from seeming spatial dispersion gives more adequate description of effects of spatial dispersion.
