Abstract

This talk presented the preliminary findings of an attempt to model the effects of dispersion in a variety of materials in a fully covariant framework. A constitutive model that exhibits dispersion in a stationary intrinsic magneto-electric medium was discussed and compared with induced magneto-electric properties arising in homogeneous dispersive moving media. Constitutive relations for hysteretic processes in ferromagnets and ferroelectrics were also discussed in this framework.
