Classical Electrodynamics (Classical Theoretical Physics)by Walter Greiner
Synopses & Reviews
The series of texts on Classical Theoretical Physics is based on the highly successful series of courses given by Walter Greiner at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, the volumes in the series provide not only a complete survey of classical theoretical physics but also an enormous number of worked examples and problem to show students clearly how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems.

This reference and workbook provides not only a complete survey of classical electrodynamics, but also an enormous number of worked examples and problems to show the reader how to apply abstract principles to realistic problems. The book will prove useful to graduate students in electrodynamics needing a practical and comprehensive treatment of the subject.
