Description:
The book is written mainly from a classical field theoretical point of view, emphasising fundamental and subtle properties of the EM field and includes a comprehensive appendix on the mathematical methods used. It treats relativistic covariance and the Lagrangian/Hamiltionan formulation of electromagnetic field theory, with an eye on modern ideas of duality and unification of theories, and includes a rigorous, comprehensive and detailed treatment of EM radiation phenomena and some elements of semiclassical quantum electrodynamics.

We present an introduction to spacetime algebra that emphasizes its power as a tool for the study of electromagnetism. We carefully develop this natural algebra of the Minkowski spacetime geometry, with a focus on its intrinsic complex structure.
