Paper Abstract

This lecture consists of three parts. In the first, a brief history of the measurements of the light velocity is outlined. In the second part the phenomenon of the superluminal propagation of light pulses in the dispersive and absorbing media is discussed. Finally, the QED effects that influence the velocity of light in vacuum in the presence of the magnetic field are reported in the third part.
