Classical Electromagnetism

A complete set of lecture notes for an upper-division undergraduate electromagnetism course. The course concentrates on the derivation, properties, and uses of Maxwell's equations. Topics covered include electrostatics, dielectric and magnetic media, magnetic induction, electromagnetic energy and momentum, the emission, scattering, and propagation of electromagnetic radiation, and the relativistic formulation of the laws of electromagnetism. A primer on vector algebra, vector calculus, and vector field theory is also included.

The lecture notes are availible in one format:

A book based on these lectures notes, entitled Maxwell's Equations and the Principles of Electromagnetism, is now available from Infinity Science Press, Hingham, MA. (ISBN: 978-1-934015-20-9)
