**Introduction to Electromagnetic Theory and the Physics of Conducting Solids**

by C. J. Papachristou

**Publisher**: Hellenic Naval Academy 2017**Number of pages**: 221

**Description**:

The purpose of this sophomore-level textbook is twofold: to introduce the student to classical electrodynamics and, at the same time, explain in simple terms the quantum theory of conducting substances. The presentation sacrifices mathematical detail in favor of pedagogigal efficiency. The theory of vector fields is briefly presented in a separate chapter, aiding the student to cope with the mathematical challenges of Maxwell's theory.

**Observers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic Electrodynamics**

by

**Bernhard Auchmann, Stefan Kurz**-

**arXiv**

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.
