Foundations of Electromagnetic Theory – Reitz & Milford – 4th Edition


This review is an update of a classic text that has been the standard text of electricity and magnetism for nearly 40 years. The fourth edition contains more worked examples, a new design and new problems.

The magnetic field of stable currents, the magnetic properties of matter, the microscopic theory of magnetism, electromagnetic induction, magnetic energy, slowly changing currents, plasmas physics, electromagnetic, electromagnetic field, field electrostatic, electrostatic field in dielectric media, properties of superconductors, Maxwell equations, monochromatic wave propagation, monochromatic in limited regions, dispersion and oscillating fields in scattered media, emission of radiation, electrodynamics, special theory of relativity. Intended for those interested in learning the basics of standard electricity and magnetism.
