Classical Field Theory
by Gleb Arutyunov
Publisher: Utrecht University 2011
Number of pages: 158
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.

These notes cover some topics in both the perturbative and non-perturbative topological Chern-Simons theory: the quantization of Chern-Simons theory, the use of surgery for computation, brief discussions about framings, eta invariants, etc.
