In this book, detailed analytical treatment and exact solutions are given to a number of problems in classical electrodynamics and boson field theory in the simplest non-Euclidean space-time models, open Bolyai and Lobachevsky space H3 and closed Riemann space S3, and (anti) de Sitter space-times. The main attention is focused on new themes created by non-vanishing curvature in the following topics: electrodynamics in curved spacetime and modeling of the media, Majorana–Oppenheimer approach in curved space time, spin 1 field theory, tetrad based Duffin–Kemmer-Petiau formalism, Schr¨odinger–Pauli limit, Dirac–K¨ahler particle, spin 2 field, anomalous magnetic moment, plane wave, cylindrical, and spherical solutions, spin 1 particle in a magnetic field, spin 1 field and cosmological radiation in de Sitter space-time, electromagnetic field and Schwarzschild black hole.
