Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than a century, "Becker" and its forerunner, "Abraham-Becker," have served as the bible of electromagnetic theory for countless students. This definitive translation of the physics classic features both volumes of the original text.

Volume I, on electromagnetic theory, includes an introduction to vector and tensor calculus, the electrostatic field, electric current and the field, and the theory of relativity. The second volume comprises a self-contained introduction to quantum theory that covers the classical principles of electron theory and quantum mechanics, problems involving one and several electrons, radiation theory, and the relativistic theory of the electron. Based on research by the great Harvard science historian Gerald Holton, this book clearly explains Maxwell's and Dirac's field equations and contains a profound discussion and elegant use of the Helmholtz theorem on vector fields. Problems with solutions appear throughout the text, which is illuminated by 148 illustrations.

Synopsis:

This classic introduction to electromagnetic fields, thoroughly revised in 1964 and available here in a one-volume edition, includes a self-contained section on quantum theory. Problems with solutions. 148 illustrations.

Synopsis:

Classic introduction, thoroughly revised, includes self-contained section on quantum theory. Problems with solutions. Two vols. bound as one. 148 illus. Reprint of 1964 edition.

About the Author

Richard Becker (1887-1955) was a German theoretical physicist  who made contributions to the fields of thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, superconductivity, and quantum electrodynamics. A student of Max Born and Albert Einstein, he received his PhD under the tutelage of Max Planck.
