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.

A concise introduction to this fundamental topic. Starting with forces on charges, it takes a progression through electrostatics and magnetostatics, both in empty space and in matter. Intended for undergraduate studies in physics and engineering.
by Alexander Altland
The text covers the history and the apparatus of electrodynamics, electrostatics, magnetostatics, electromagnetic gauge field, field energy and momentum, electromagnetic radiation, macroscopic electrodynamics, relativistic invariance, etc.

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.

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.
