Physics 504: Electricity &
Magnetism II, Spring 2019
Announcement: NO CLASS on Monday, April 15. We will make up this class at a later time (to be announced).
Lectures: Monday and Thursday, 10:20 - 11:40 am, ARC-207. 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 to ask
questions during and after lectures or during office hour.

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
We'll have homework & final. Both contribute equally (50%) to the grade.
