Physics 435 Advanced Electromagnetism I

Welcome to Physics 435 -- Class starts on Monday, Aug. 21, 2023.

Phys 435 is the first semester of a year-long course in Classical Electrodynamics. E&M is more than just a way of computing E and B fields: It is the first field theory, the first gauge theory, and a deep dive into the way physical theories of nature are structured. The text is Introduction to Electrodynamics by David Griffiths. I will usually refer to material from the 3rd edition, though as far as I can tell the 4th edition is identical.
