Homework Help: Magnetization current density?

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    Can someone explain to me what the magnetization current density (given by the curl of the magnetization M) and surface magnetization current density (given by the vector product between M and a surface normal vector) are? I have a book on electromagnetism but it doesn't really give a good exlanation to this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Take Griffiths 'Introduction to electrodynamics' 3rd edition out of the bookshelf at your library and read pp.266-268.
