Electromagnetic theory is basic to classical and relativistic physics at every level. This text covers material for a year's course in advanced theoretical electromagnetism, at all times keeping mathematics ancillary to the physics. Prior knowledge of differential equations and vector analysis will prepare the reader for inquiry into:

• meaning and definition of vectors

• interpretations of the conservation laws for energy, momentum and angular momentum

• localization and flow of electromagnetic energy

• concepts of invariance, form invariance and covariance in special relativity

Summation problems form a kind of pattern in treating all the topics, which include general boundary value, dielectrics, time-varying fields, time-harmonic currents and propagation in imperfect conductors. Problems (no solutions) and references (annotated) are found at the end of each chapter; a general bibliography is also appended. Students have discovered this book in its earlier hardcover edition to be a stimulating exploration of theory, self-contained and suitable for unsupervised study; physicists and professors will find more than one fresh insight into their field.
