Physics books in PDF - Physics and UniverseThis book proposes intriguing arguments that will enable students to achieve a deeper understanding of electromagnetism, while also presenting a number of classical methods for solving difficult problems. Two chapters are devoted to relativistic electrodynamics, covering all aspects needed for a full comprehension of the nature of electric and magnetic fields and, subsequently, electrodynamics. Each of the two final chapters examines a selected experimental issue, introducing students to the work involved in actually proving a law or theory. Classical books on electricity and magnetism are mentioned in many references, helping to familiarize students with books that they will encounter in their further studies. Various problems are presented, together with their worked-out solutions. The book is based on notes from special lectures delivered by the author to students during the second year of a BSc course in Physics, but the subject matter may also be of interest to senior physicists, as many of the themes covered are completely ignored or touched only briefly in standard textbooks.
John David Jackson (physicist)
Welcome to Physics ! In this class we will study charges, currents, electric and magnetic fields, and their interactions. Much of the physics is expressed in a single, remarkable set of equations. This formulation of electromagnetism is due primarily to the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell. His equations, in one form or another, describe phenomenon ranging from the propagation of light to the deflection of a compass needle by a magnetic field.
John David Jackson's "Classical Electrodynamics" 3rd ed. Those who pass enjoy forcing the same pain on the next generation. Well, here's some help in that regard.

A theoretical physicist, he was a member of the National Academy of Sciences , and is well known for numerous publications and summer-school lectures in nuclear and particle physics , as well as his widely-used graduate text on classical electrodynamics. Jackson's high standards and admonitory vocabulary are the subject of an amusing memorial volume by his son Ian Jackson. Jackson held academic appointments successively at McGill University , thanks to Philip Russell Wallace , a prominent Canadian theoretical physicist, January — ; then the University of Illinois at Urbana—Champaign — ; and finally the University of California, Berkeley — At the latter, he held appointments on campus and at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. After retiring from teaching in , he continued to be active at LBNL. At McGill in the s, in addition to appreciable teaching, Jackson found time for research on atomic processes and nuclear reactions at intermediate energies and the beginnings of his book on classical electricity and magnetism.
