Preface
This lecture notes covers the principal elements of classical electromagnetictheory embodying Maxwell’s equations with applications mainly to situationswhere electric charge can be treated as a continuous fluid. The intention isto introduce students to the background of classical field theory and theapplications of the electromagnetic theory to solid state physics, classicaloptics, radiation theory and telecommunication.The goal of this course is to provide a compact logical exposition of thefundamentals of the electromagnetic theory and the applications to variousareas of physics and engineering. The treatment is quantitative throughoutand an attempt has been made to imbue students with a sound understandingof the Maxwell’s equations and with the ability to apply them to modernproblems in physics.The organization of the lectures is fairly standard and includes vectoranalysis, electrostatic, magnetostatic, mathematical techniques in the solu-tion of the Maxwell’s equations and the Laplace’s equation, time varyingfields and applications of the solution of the Maxwell’s equations. The ma-terial on vector analysis gives greater emphasis to the relationship betweenfields and their sources.A number of revision questions have been included at the end of eachchapter. These questions have been designed not only to point out to thestudent the essential material of the chapter but also to test the students’understanding of the material presented in the chapter. In addition, tutorialproblems have been included at the end of the chapters that contain themost important elements of the electromagnetic theory. These problemswill be discussed and solved in details during the tutorial sessions, but itis hoped that the student will attack these problems before attending thetutorial session.2
