Office: Serin 270 E
E-mail (best): eyuzbash at physics.rutgers.edu
Phone: (848) 445-9035
Office hour: Friday, 4-5 pm



NO CLASS on Friday, October 27

Final:
Tuesday, December 19, 12 - 3 pm

Lectures:
Tuesday and Friday, 12 - 1:20 pm, ARC-205. To benefit most from lectures, it's best to read the text ahead of lecture. Then, you can ask questions that wouldn't otherwise come up. Don't hesitate toask questions during and after lectures or during office hour.

Main (required) text: Andrew Zangwill "Modern Electrodynamics" 1st Edition, Cambridge University Press, 2013; ISBN 978-0-521-89697-9

Other recommended texts: J. D. Jackson "Classical Electrodynamics" is a standard graduate textbook that has been used for decades. You can find an elegant treatment of many topics in L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz "The classical theory of fields" (Course of theoretical physics, Volume 2) and "Electrodynamics of Continuous Media" (Course of Theoretical Physics, Vol. 8). Finally, "Introduction to Electrodynamics" by D. J. Griffiths is an exellent resourse for refreshing your knowledge of undegraduate E & M and for a simpler, more intuitive prospective on many topics.
