Abstract

In the preceding Comment, Marques has criticized my derivation of the heating rate in electrically and magnetically polarizable media. The main thrust of the Comment is that the macroscopic magnetization current c∇ × M is “not enough for properly characterizing a physical portion of the body”. This and other Marques’ statements are critically analyzed and rebutted in this reply.
