**Electromagnetic Field Theory**

by Bo ThidÃ©

**Publisher**: Upsilon Books 2008**ISBN/ASIN**: 0486477738**ISBN-13**: 9780486477732**Number of pages**: 262

**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.
