The most complete nonrelativistic theory of dynamic fluctuation electromagnetic interactions between particles of various types (charges, dipoles, neutral atoms, nanoparticles) and the surfaces (flat or cylindrical) of a polarizable medium (the boundary of a solid) is reported for the first time. The theory is based on the application of the Maxwell equations and the formalism of fluctuation-dissipation relations. For a flat surface, effects of spatial dispersion are also taken into account. Papers of other authors are analyzed critically. The results of recent investigations in which dissipative fluctuational forces could be observed are considered briefly.
