This well-known undergraduate electrodynamics textbook is now available in a more affordable printing from Cambridge University Press.
The Fourth Edition provides a rigorous, yet clear and accessible treatment of the fundamentals of electromagnetic theory wlectrodinamica offers a sound platform for explorations of related applications AC circuits, antennas, transmission lines, plasmas, optics and inyroduccion.
Written keeping in mind the conceptual hurdles typically faced by undergraduate students, this textbook illustrates the theoretical steps with well-chosen examples and careful illustrations. It balances text and equations, allowing the physics to shine through without compromising the rigour of the math, and includes numerous problems, varying from straightforward to elaborate, so that students can be assigned some problems to build their confidence and others to stretch their minds.
A Solutions Manual is available to instructors teaching from the book; access can be requested from the resources section at www. griffirhs

I am falling in love with my life. I girffiths a mathematician and I graduated from Physics Department in a university. These days, I am studying physics again rereading old books that I had or reading new books. When I was an undergraduate student, I learned electrodynamics with the textbook, Foundations of Electromagnetic Theory by Reitz, Milford, and Christy. When I tried to reread it, I found out that I eledtrodinamica most of the things that I learned and the style of the book is a little formal and boring.
So I searched reviews on electromagnetism textbooks at Amazon and I decided to read the book, Introduction to Electrodynamics by David Eelctrodinamica. I was really satisfied with this book. As the author says in Preface, the style of the book is less formal than most of other books. While reading the book, I felt like I attended his classes. He emphasizes what is not usually emphasized in other books. For example, on page 42, it says, ” For another instance, on pageit says, “Some people regard these the Maxwell’s four equations having expression with D and H as the “true” Maxwell’s equations, but please understand that they are in electtrodinamica way more “general” than Eq.
There are a lot of examples and problems in the book. I’ve read most of the examples, but I solved only a few problems that seem to be interesting. Maybe some of you don’t need any pencil and paper to read the book although I desperately needed them. The author even jokes at some pages. For example, on page 98, it says, “The electric field inside a conductor is zero. Because if itnroduccion were any field, those free charges would move, and it wouldn’t be electrostatics the title of the chapter any more.
There are many results that are induced from long mathematical calculations. But since in many places the author explains their meaning before or after the calculation in an intuitive way, you may find no trouble even if you skip the whole mathematical steps.
If you need the part later, you can come back to that part at anytime. Just a glance of them would be enough for many readers, especially, like myself, who just want to know what electrodynamics is electfodinamica.

The book is concrete, lucid and thorough in its explanation as well. For example, on pageit says, “As it turns out, H is more useful quantity than D. In the laboratory, you will frequently hear people talking griffithe H more often even than Bbut you will never hear anyone speak elfctrodinamica D only E. Introdjccion reason is introduccikn To build an electromagnet you run a certain free current through a coil.
The current is the thing you read on the dial, and this determines H or at any rate, the line integral of H ; B depends on the specific materials you used and even, if iron is present, on the history of your magnet. On the other hand, if you want to set up an electric epaol, you do not plaster a known free charge on the plates of a parallel plate capacitor; rather, you connect them to a battery of known voltage.
It’s the potential difference you read on your dial, and that determines E or rather, the line integral of E ; D depends on the details of the dielectric you’re using. It often asks fundamental questions in many places. For example, on page 96, “Equations 2. The first is an integral over the charge distribution: For instance, in the case of spherical shell the charge is confined to the surface, whereas the electric field is everywhere outside its surface.
Where is the energy, then? Is it stored in the field, as Eq. Firstly, I wished that I would really grlffiths the principles of batteries. For instance, how is it possible to sustain a constant voltage difference? I had to be content with the fact that it is not an easy subject.
Actually, the author recommends reading an academic paper in case the readers want to know about the principles of batteries. Secondly, I wished to learn about gauge invariance in electrodynamics. The electric and magnetic fields they are physically real can be expressed using electric and magnetic potentials they are only mathematical objects not having any physical realityrespectively. But the choice of electric and magnetic griffighs need not be unique.
Here we have a freedom to choose like when we electrodinamicx an antiderivative of a given function. While different choice of gauge gives different formulae, each choice of them is more convenient than others in its proper situation. For this, I am very satisfied with the book. Thirdly, I wished to understand the relationships between relativity and electrodynamics.
They are known to have intimate relationships. In fact, the paper on special relativity by Einstein begins with some griffifhs of electrodynamics. For this purpose, it went beyond my expectations. It was extremely helpful.
The book introduces relativity in the final chapter.
In the first section, it begins with a question on electromagnetic induction; when a moving coil passes above a static magnet, a current by the magnetic force Lorenz force flows in the coil.
On the other hand, when a moving magnet passes above a static coil, a current by an electric force Faraday’s law flows in the coil. In his paper on special relativity, Einstein asked. And from there, the book introduces the basics of special relativity; time dilation, length contraction, Lorentz transformations, four-vectors, relativistic energy and momentum, relativistic dynamics, tensors.
After that, the book sheds new light on classical electrodynamics from the point of view of relativity. There, we learn that “we can calculate the magnetic force between a current-carrying wire and a moving charge without ever invoking the classical laws of magnetism only assuming classical laws of electrostatics and relativity. In addition, we can understand how a point charge moving in uniform velocity can generate a magnetic field note that a moving charge itself is not a current.
In the last section, the book formulates the Maxwell’s four equations using tensor notations. It is just a simple equation that can be written in one line. Even if you are already familiar with special relativity, I recommend that you read the chapter carefully.
