Sep 08, Dave rated it really liked it. The best part about this for me was the chapter on Vector Analysis which most book fails at sinc Introduction to Electrodynamics is probably the best book I have read on Electrodynamics at the Introductory introductioon, though I have heard great reviews on the Classical Electrodynamics by Jackson which is what I am planning to read very soon.

Introduction to Electrodynamics, 4th Edition

The best introductory book about electromagnetism. David Griffiths, I salute you sir. I’m just starting his Quantum Mechanics d.j.griftiths and long for the day after when I can crack open that Elementary Particles book. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.

Aug 30, Roshan Shrestha rated it it was amazing. The book is well-organized and written in semi-conversational language which greatly relieved the effort I spent on trying to comprehend the material. The first half teaches you to calculate electric fields created by unmoving charges and magnetic fiel “It can be covered comfortably in two semesters,” but unfortunately I’m not taking a class on this and don’t have two semesters to spend on it, so I had to skip or skim most of the math and read for definitions and basic ideas.

While students need to be quite comfortable with calculus to deal with the notation, the explanations are elementary and clear. The one thing that I don’t like about this book is its solutions to problems which is the another book which I think was hastily and poorly written and don’t do justice to this book.


If You’re a Student Additional order info. If he could have just made the special relativity part higher level and added more exercises for Mikowski-Raum in order it to be -for anyone- easier with 4th-dimensional problems. New problems and new worked examples appear throughout, while selected unsuccessful ones have been eliminated.

Shankar’s “Principles of Quantum Mechanics” offers a nice introduction with underlying prerequisite …more Haven’t read it in its entirety yetbut R. Overall, I would recommend this book even if it’s not chosen as the textbook for your class. This is the kind of textbook that a self-motivated learner read: It doesn’t follow the serious tone of a typical textbook which makes this a much lighter read, even is sections that are very mathematical.

For more advanced material you’ll need Jackson, but Griffiths smooths the way tremendously. Yeah, those are a mouthful. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

As for notation, i-hat, j-hat and k-hat are dumb and add needless letter clutter. While students need to be quite comfortable with calculus to deal with the notation, the explanations are elementary Other than getting used to full vector notation in calculus, there is really no reason to teach from any other electrodynamics book at the undergraduate level.

Much of the math is overly-shortcutted for my tastes, but that is why the book is so thin.

Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. Griffiths

He writes to the student, saying how “you” need to do this, and sometimes how “I” prefer to do that. This is one of my all-time favorite reference books. Best textbook I’ve ever had the pleasure and it really was a pleasure of reading. Intuitive pictures and explanations accompany any abstract proof. Every book should be this book.

Of course, having worked with the author, I inteoduction the added bonus of hearing his voice saying the words in this book when I read it, which certainly adds something. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.


If I could change anything about this book, I’d put the solutions to the problems in the back. The new section fully explores the actual mechanism in cases where magnetic forces are actually working. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Buku teks untuk mata kuliah yang berhubungan dengan Elektromagnetik Klasik. This book is the paragon of fine textbook writing. I love this book. In short, there’s a good balance with the level of difficulty of the problem sets here – which d.j.grifdiths me is important for learning.

Aug 30, Chandra Prakash rated it it was amazing.

All figures have been reviewed for accuracy and updated where necessary. All in all, it is certainly one of the best books on Electromagnetism out there. Books by David J. Jul electrodynqmics, Mobin Shakeri rated it it was amazing.

Sangat membantu untuk anda yang mau memahami gejala Elektromagnetik klasik secara mendasar dan teoritik. It happens very rarely that a textbook combines mathematical rigor and physical intuition so effortlessly the way this one does. May 25, Laurel rated it it was amazing. Jul 24, Langsguyar Arteaga rated it it was amazing. It addresses subtle points on many occasions. Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. Jackson is a graduate text and may be a stress for undergrads.

Seriously one of the best stories ever told. Nov 28, Mgt. It shows how the laws of electromagnetic waves and radiation are related to Maxwell’s equations – I really wished I was following the math at that point! Jan 25, Silvio Curtis rated it really liked it. The story starts with how have we learned simple electric and magnetic fields behave experimentally, and what are equations that model that?
