Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 118
We present a comprehensive introduction to spacetime algebra that emphasizes its practicality and power as a tool for the study of electromagnetism. We carefully develop this natural (Clifford) algebra of the Minkowski spacetime geometry, with a particular focus on its intrinsic (and often overlooked) complex structure.

These lecture notes provide a comprehensive introduction to Electromagnetism, aimed at undergraduates. The notes assume a familiarity with Newtonian mechanics and special relativity. They also assume a knowledge of vector calculus.

Covered topics: The relativistically invariant formulation of the laws of electromagnetism; The effect of dielectric and magnetic materials on electric and magnetic fields; The generation, propagation, and scattering of electromagnetic waves.

We discuss electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We review Maxwell's equations and show that there are solutions representing the propagation of electromagnetic 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...
