Welcome to Physics 435! Class starts on Monday, August 26, 2019 in 124 Burrill Hall. Hpefully Prof. Abbamonte will not be late the first day, since he is not sure where this room is, though he can read a map. 

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 look at the way physical theories of nature are structured. The text is Introduction to Electrodynamics by David Griffiths. I will usually refer to reading from the 3rd edition, though as far as I can tell the 4th edition is identical. 

 

We will use iClickers in this course. Please register yours using the links on the student gradebook webpages.
