Agra Sena. Not merely clear and effective - it is joyful. The students loved it It is a time-tested and highly optimized book. He held post- doctoral positions at the University of Utah and the University of Massachusetts Amherst , and taught at Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, and Trinity College Hartford before joining the faculty at Reed College, where he has taught for over 30 years.
Although his PhD was in elementary particle theory, his recent research is in electrodynamics and quantum mechanics. He is the author of forty-five papers and three books: Customer Reviews Most helpful customer reviews 34 of 34 people found the following review helpful.
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 forgot 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 J. 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 page , it 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 no 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 there 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 about. The book is concrete, lucid and thorough in its explanation as well. For example, on page , it says, "As it turns out, H is more useful quantity than D.
In the laboratory, you will frequently hear people talking about H more often even than B , but you will never hear anyone speak of D only E. The reason is this: 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 field, 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. 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 understand 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 reality , respectively. But the choice of electric and magnetic potentials need not be unique. Here we have a freedom to choose like when we choose 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. The highly polished Fourth Edition features a clear, easy-to-understand treatment of the fundamentals of electromagnetic theory, providing a sound platform for the exploration of related applications AC circuits, antennas, transmission lines, plasmas, optics, etc.
Its lean and focused approach employs numerous new examples and problems. Pearson offers special pricing when you package your text with other student resources.

The book features a friendly, informal style. Focuses clearly on basic electromagnetic theory, providing a sound platform for future exploration of related applications such as AC circuits, antennas, transmission lines, plasmas, optics, etc. Features a more extensive coverage of radiation theory than most texts at this level. New to This Edition. Edits to the entire text have clarified arguments and eliminated ambiguities. New problems and new worked examples appear throughout, while selected unsuccessful ones have been eliminated.
All figures have been reviewed for accuracy and updated where necessary. The new section fully explores the actual mechanism in cases where magnetic forces are actually working. Erroneous passages have been corrected. Citations of recent literature appear throughout for those who wish to pursue a particular topic in greater depth.
This literature helps reinforce the point that electrodynamics is a vibrant and dynamic field, even after years.
