Theory of Electromagnetic Fields

Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 51
We discuss the theory of electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We begin by reviewing Maxwell's equations and their physical significance. We show that in free space, there are solutions to Maxwell's equations representing the propagation of electromagnetic fields as waves.

This set of lecture notes is designed to be used to teach graduate students classical electrodynamics. In particular, it supports the second semester of a two semester course in electrodynamics that covers pretty much 'all' of the theory itself...

We present an introduction to spacetime algebra that emphasizes its power as a tool for the study of electromagnetism. We carefully develop this natural algebra of the Minkowski spacetime geometry, with a focus on its intrinsic complex structure.

This sophomore-level textbook introduces the student to classical electrodynamics and explains in simple terms the quantum theory of conducting substances. The presentation sacrifices mathematical detail in favor of pedagogigal efficiency.
