Book summary

Paying close attention to the experimental evidence as the basis for its theoretical development, the book's first five chapters follow the traditional introduction to electricity: vector calculus, electrostatic field and potential, boundary-value problems, dielectrics, and electric energy. Chapters 6 and 7 provide an overview of the physical foundations of special relativity and of the four-dimensional tensor formalism. In chapter 8, the union of Coulomb's law with the laws of special relativity leads to the relativistic form of Maxwell's equations. The book concludes with applications of Maxwell's equations in chapters 9 through 16: magnetostatics, induction, materials, electromagnetic waves, radiation, waveguides, and scattering and diffraction. Numerous examples and excercises are included. [via]
