About this book

After four decades of debate about the mechanism of the interaction of the solar wind with the magnetosphere, the author believes it is time to get back to basics. Starting from Newton's law and Maxwell's equations, Earth's Magnetosphere covers areas of electromagnetics theory and subsidiary equations such as continuity, constitutive relations and the Lorentz transformation. This interaction is further investigated by the use of Helmholtz's theorem as well as Poynting's theorem.
