Summary:
"Core Electrodynamics is written in concise form to engage the reader in the elegance of electrodynamics and special relativity, while retaining sufficient rigour for graduate study." "From the basis of experiment the Maxwell equations and special relativity are first derived. The mathematical framework of generalized tensors is then introduced and the laws of mechanics, the Lorentz force and the Maxwell equations  Read more...
