*if we had made that assumption beforehand*, but it seems that we never made such an approximation. So even though usually negligible, shouldn't there be a certain amount of radiation due to the oscillating dipoles?

**Apparently the equations of Maxwell for matter don't account for the radiation caused by the time-variation of [tex]\vec P \quad \textrm{ in } \quad \vec D = \epsilon_0 \vec E + \vec P,[/tex]**

is this correct?(if

is this correct?

*not*correct, how do you explain the first paragraph?)
