Description of Classical Electrodynamics 3rd Edition

Classical Electrodynamics (3rd Edition) written by John David Jackson is a great Physics book for Electrodynamics studies available in (PDF) download. Classical electromagnetic theory, together with classical and quantum mechanics, forms the core of present-day theoretical training for undergraduate and graduate physicists. A thorough grounding in these subjects is a requirement for more advanced or specialized training. Typically the undergraduate program in electricity and magnetism involves two or perhaps three semesters beyond elementary physics, with the emphasis on the fundamental laws, laboratory verification and elaboration of their consequences, circuit analysis, simple wave phenomena, and radiation. The mathematical tools utilized include vector calculus, ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients, Fourier series, and perhaps Fourier or Laplace transforms, partial differential equations, Legendre polynomials, and Bessel functions.

The Classical Electrodynamics 3rd Edition book begins in the traditional manner with electrostatics. The first six chapters are devoted to the development of Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism. Much of the necessary mathematical apparatus is constructed along the way, especially in Chapter 2 and 3, where boundary-value problems are discussed thoroughly. The treatment is initially in terms of the electric field E and the magnetic induction B, with the derived macroscopic quantities, D and H, introduced by suitable averaging over ensembles of atoms or molecules. In the discussion of dielectrics, simple classical models for atomic polarizability are described, but for magnetic materials no such attempt to made. Partly this omission was a question of space, but truly classical models of magnetic susceptibility are not possible. Furthermore, elucidation of the interesting phenomenon of ferromagnetism needs almost a book in itself.
