Classical Electrodynamics : From Image Charges to the Photon Mass and Magnetic Monopoles, Paperback / softback Book

Classical Electrodynamics : From Image Charges to the Photon Mass and Magnetic Monopoles Paperback / softback

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics series

Description

This book proposes intriguing arguments that will enable students to achieve a deeper understanding of electromagnetism, while also presenting a number of classical methods for solving difficult problems.

Two chapters are devoted to relativistic electrodynamics, covering all aspects needed for a full comprehension of the nature of electric and magnetic fields and, subsequently, electrodynamics.

Each of the two final chapters examines a selected experimental issue, introducing students to the work involved in actually proving a law or theory.

Classical books on electricity and magnetism are mentioned in many references, helping to familiarize students with books that they will encounter in their further studies.

Various problems are presented, together with their worked-out solutions.

The book is based on notes from special lectures delivered by the author to students during the second year of a BSc course in Physics, but the subject matter may also be of interest to senior physicists, as many of the themes covered are completely ignored or touched only briefly in standard textbooks.
