|Abstract||The resonant frequencies of an electromagnetic cavity in a nonpermanent gravitational field such as that provided by rotation are considered. The constitutive equations for accelerated macroscopic matter are developed, and it is shown that the electromagnetic-field tensors are related by H/sub xt/ = K/sub e/F/sub xt/ and K/sub m/H/sup xy/ = F/sup xy/, etc. For the special case of angular rotation about the z axis, the constitutive equations are given in terms of noncovariant field vectors B, H, D, E. Maxwell's equations are solved using these constitutive equations and it is shown that the degeneracy between the axially degenerate modes, i.e., clockwise and and counter-clockwise traveling waves, is removed by the rotation. In vacuum a shift in frequency of OMEGA . J/ h or a splitting between traveling wave modes of 2 OMEGA . J/h is predicted from the simflarity between energy flux and momentum. This led to a suggestion of the Coriolis-Zeeman,, effect for photons. Using either the above development or the energy density, it is shown that the effect depends on the moment of the energy flux and is only proportional to the aagular momentum. In the geometrical- optics region an index of refraction valid for accelerated macroscopic matter is developed and is applied to the square FabryPerot cavity rate gyroscope to yield the same result as either of the above methods. An experiment to show the validity of Minkowski's decomposition of the energymomentum tensor is discussed. (auth)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
