Hey, I don't quite understand that guy, K.

I have an exam on Sunday in E&M, I'm studying from Jackson. I haven't found any definition of 'K'.

If anyone could give me arigurousdefinition and an integral form, if there's any, I'd appreciate it.

Oh, and since we're at it, I stumped into that next statement:

"Suppose that the upper half of space is filled with a permeable media, while the other half is empty space. If, in the x-y plane, K is in the x direction, it follows that A (vector potential) is also in that direction in the entire space".

Huh?
