Treats certain problems and methods of theoretical physics and astrophysics which are associated with microscopic and macroscopic electrodynamics and material concerning the theory of transition radiation and transition scattering.

The Hamiltonian approach to electrodynamics; radiation reaction; uniformly accelerated charges; radiation emitted by relativistic and non-relativistic moving particles; synchrotron radiation; electrodynamics of a continuous medium; the Cerenkov and Doppler effects; transition radiation and transition scattering; superluminal sources of radiation; reabsorption and transfer of radiation; electrodynamics of media with spatial dispersion; permittivity and wave propagation in plasmas; the energy-momentum tensor and forces in macroscopic electrodynamics, energy and heat liberated in a dispersive absorbing medium; fluctuations and van der Waals forces; wave scattering in a medium; astrophysics of cosmic rays; x-ray astronomy; gamma-ray astronomy.
