Classical Electrodynamics – John David Jackson – 2nd Edition


This edition refines and improves the first edition. It treats the present experimental limits on the mass of photon and the status of linear superposition, and introduces many other innovations.

A revision of the defining book covering the physics and classical mathematics necessary to understand electromagnetic fields in materials and at surfaces and interfaces. This edition has been revised to address the changes in emphasis and applications that have occurred in the past twenty years.
