A theoretical investigation of birefringences in cubic and uniaxial magnetic crystals.
In this thesis a consistent multipole theory is used to describe light propagation in nonabsorbing magnetic cubic and uniaxial crystals to the order of electric octopoles and magnetic quadrupoles. The first chapter extends ...
Theories and computation of second virial coefficients of electromagnetic phenomena.
Many bulk properties of gases depend linearly on the gas density at lower densities, but as the density increases departures from linearity are observed. The density dependence of a bulk property Q may often be discussed ...
The effect of antisymmetrization in diquark models of baryons.
In this thesis the effect of antisymmetrization in diquark models of baryons composed of light (u and d) quarks is investigated. The diquark in this study is considered alternately as a pointlike and as a composite ...
A ray tracing study of VLF phenomena.
Whistlers have, for many years, been used as probes of the ionosphere and magnetosphere. Whistlers received on the ground have been shown (Smith , Helliwell ) to have propagated, in almost all cases, through ...
Photothermal refraction and focusing.
This thesis begins with an introduction to the interaction and refraction of light in continuous media. It is shown how these properties can be exploited to achieve focusing of parallel light rays in such a medium. Past ...
