Electromagnetism of Continuous Media

This chapter provides a scheme of nonlocal electromagnetism and develops a scheme of superconductivity. In essence, nonlocality is meant as a description of constitutive properties through appropriate spatial gradients. This is allowed by generalizing the expressions of the energy and the entropy fluxes while keeping the possible dependence on the history. Superconductivity is developed by starting from an improvement of the London theory and the thermodynamic analysis is performed. The Ginzburg-Landau theory is improved through an evolution model.

Keywords:   nonlocality, entropy flux, superconductivity, London equations, superconductors with memory, Ginzburg-Landau theory, evolution model
