**Classical Field Theory**

by Gleb Arutyunov

**Publisher**: Utrecht University 2011**Number of pages**: 158

**Description**:

The aim of the course is to introduce the basic methods of classical field theory and to apply them in a variety of physical models ranging from classical electrodynamics to macroscopic theory of ferromagnetism. In particular, the course will cover the Lorentz-covariant formulation of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory, advanced radiation problems, the Ginzburg-Landau theory of superconductivity, hydrodynamics of ideal liquids, the Navier-Stokes equation and elements of soliton theory.
