# Theory of Electrodynamics in Media in Noninertial Frames and Applications

@article{Mo1970TheoryOE, title={Theory of Electrodynamics in Media in Noninertial Frames and Applications}, author={Tse Chin Mo}, journal={Journal of Mathematical Physics}, year={1970}, volume={11}, pages={2589-2610} }

The theory of local electrodynamics of media in given noninertial frames, within the Maxwell‐Einstein theory, is constructed in terms of local observable EM fields and physical media parameters of its comoving frame. Localization of tensors to observables for and their relations among observers in different frames are introduced; local and global constitutive tensors and local Maxwell equations are obtained and interpreted. Also, a Lagrangian formulation for both lossless and lossy media is…
