Spacetime algebra as a powerful tool for electromagnetism
by Justin Dressel, Konstantin Y. Bliokh, Franco Nori - arXiv , 2014
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.
Observers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic Electrodynamics
by Bernhard Auchmann, Stefan Kurz - arXiv , 2014
We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.
Variational Principle of Extremum in Electromechanical and Electrodynamic Systems
by Solomon I. Khmelnik - viXra , 2012
Here we shall formulate the variational optimum principle for electromechanical systems of arbitrary configuration, in which electromagnetic processes are going on. The principle is generalized for systems described by partial differential equations.
by Robert G. Brown - Duke University Physics Department , 2007
This set of lecture notes is designed to be used to teach graduate students classical electrodynamics. In particular, it supports the second semester of a two semester course in electrodynamics that covers pretty much 'all' of the theory itself...
by Raymond John Protheroe - Bookboon , 2013
Starting with Maxwell's equations and conservation laws, the book takes a logical step-by-step progression through electromagnetic waves in empty space, dispersive media and in waveguides. The book ends with radiation and scattering.
by Raymond John Protheroe - Bookboon , 2013
A concise introduction to this fundamental topic. Starting with forces on charges, it takes a progression through electrostatics and magnetostatics, both in empty space and in matter. Intended for undergraduate studies in physics and engineering.
