This second edition contains nearly 900 problems on classical electrodynamics provided with answers or detailed solutions, including more than 200 problems on the special theory of relativity. Chapters are devoted to vector and tensor calculus, electrostatics, steady currents, magnetostatics, electrical and magnetic properties of matter, quasi-stationary electromagnetic fields, propagation of electromagnetic waves, electromagnetic oscillations in finite bodies, special theory of relativity, relativistic mechanics, emission of electromagnetic waves, and interaction of charged particles with matter. Each section is prefaced by a short introduction. This edition has been revised, supplemented, and edited by D ter Haar, and contains several new problems, including some taken from Oxford University examination papers, and new sections on superconductivity, coherence and interference, and x-ray diffraction, and a new chapter on plasma physics. A large number of the problems follow naturally from a lecture course on electrodynamics, but some are concerned with topics which are not well covered by existing texts, such as the interaction of charged particles with matter, applications of conservation laws to the analysis of collision processes and particle disintegration, and ferromagnetic resonance.
