In this study we investigated the kinematics of electromagnetic fields with various configurations of the magnetic and electric fields in systems with spherical and cylindrical symmetry using the exact solutions to the diffusion equation for the electromagnetic field in systems with moving boundaries. In the class of self-similar solutions we determined analytically conditions for the amplification of the electromagnetic field as functions of material velocity and electric conductivity. We investigated also the effects of the amplification of an electromagnetic field during propagation of a spherical shock wave in a dielectric material whereby the shock wave causes transformation of a material into a conductor.
