By Wolfgang K. H. Panofsky,Melba Phillips

Compact, transparent, and specified in its presentation, this special, ordinary textbook deals graduate scholars and complex undergraduates a various and well-balanced choice of topics.
Subjects comprise the electrostatic box in vacuum; boundary stipulations and relation of microscopic to macroscopic fields; common equipment for the answer of capability difficulties, together with these of 2 and 3 dimensions; power family and forces within the electrostatic box; regular currents and their interplay; magnet fabrics and boundary price difficulties; and Maxwell’s equations. extra subject matters comprise strength, strength, and momentum family members within the electromagnetic box; the wave equation and airplane waves; carrying out fluids in a magnetic box; waves within the presence of metal barriers; the inhomogeneous wave equation; the experimental foundation for the speculation of exact relativity; relativistic kinematics and the Lorentz transformation; covariance and relativistic mechanics; covariant formula of electrodynamics; and the Liénard-Wiechert potentials and the sector of a uniformly relocating electron.
The textual content concludes with examinations of radiation from an sped up cost; radiation response and covariant formula of the conservation legislation of electrodynamics; radiation, scattering, and dispersion; the movement of charged debris in electromagnetic fields; and Hamiltonian formula of Maxwell’s equations.
