In the course of my learning electromagnetism, I’ve noticed there are a striking amount of symmetries in electrostatics and magnetostatics, almost down to replacing divergence operators with curl operators. For instance,
$$\vec P = \epsilon \vec E$$ $$\vec H = \mu \vec B$$
For linear media, and
$$\vec D = \epsilon_0 \vec E + \vec P$$ $$\vec B = \mu_0 (\vec H + \vec M)$$
And where $\vec H$ is defined, at least in Griffiths, in a completely analogous way to electric displacement, save for the typical curl operator that is usual for magnetostatics and a current density instead of charge density.
I am tempted to say that the effects of polarization and magnetization are totally analogous, that “$\vec H$ is basically the magnetostatic equivalent of $\vec D$” since I have far more trouble visualizing magnetization than I do polarization so if I can get away with thinking this way it’d make my learning easier I think. Do I have it wrong? Am I justified in thinking things in terms of analogizing from polarization? Am I oversimplifying things massively? Be as pedantic as you’d like.
