Designed as an upper-level undergraduate/beginning graduate text and as a reference for research scientists, Modern Problems in Classical Electrodynamics addresses a wide range of topics in modern physics--including lasers and nonlinear optics--that are not found in other texts. The book begins with relativistic mechanics and field theory, partly because they lend unity and beauty to electrodynamics, and also because relativistic concepts appear frequently throughout the book. Electrostatics and magnetostatics, waves, continuous media, nonlinear optics, diffraction, and radiation by moving particles are then covered in depth. The book concludes by returning to basics, discussing the fundamental problems inherent in the classical theory of electrons.

Modern Problems in Classical Electrodynamics features examples and homework exercises drawn from condensed-matter physics, particle physics, optics, and atomic physics. Many of these are experimentally oriented and help to make the book interesting and relevant to a broad audience. An instructor's manual including answers to the homework exercises is available to adopters. An accompanying website, http://www.physics.vanderbilt.edu/brau/book/Index.html, contains errata and additional homework exercises that instructors can use to supplement the exercises in the text.

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Designed to be a text for Jr/Sr./beginning graduate level (4th, 5th yr)and a reference for research scientists, Modern Problems in Classical Electrodynamics includes materials such as lasers and nonlinear dynamics that are missing from traditional electrodynamics books. The book begins with relativistic mechanics and field theory, in part because they lend unity and beauty to electrodynamics, and in part because relativistic concepts appear frequently in the rest of the book. Relativity is a natural part of electrodynamics. After that, the book turns to electrostatics and magnetostatics, waves, continuous media, nonlinear optics, diffraction, and radiation by moving particles. Examples and homework exercises throughout the book are taken from condensed-matter physics, particle physics, optics, and atomic physics. Many are experimentally oriented, reflecting the view that classical electrodynamics has a broad importance in modern physics that extends beyond preparing students for quantum mechanics. At the end, the book returns to basics, and discusses the fundamental problems inherent in the classical theory of electrons. Seller Inventory # AAS9780195146653
