I’m just starting his Quantum Mechanics book and long for the day after when I can crack open that Elementary Particles book.

All figures have been reviewed for accuracy and updated where necessary. This is the kind of textbook that a self-motivated learner read: This work offers accesible coverage of the fundamentals of electrodynamics, enhanced with with discussion points, examples and exercises. That’s a shame, because it meant missing the heart of the textbook, even though the author tries to give geometrical and intuitive explanations too where at all possible.

David’s notation is better, except that the r-prime for location of charge and the r-prime for r variable under the integral sign can be confused when you’re just quickly looking something up. He treats the subject with just the right level of rigor, where you understand why the equations and principles are the way they are, but not at the point where you are swamped with burdensome grad school math. Shankar’s “Principles of Quantum Mechanics” offers a nice introduction with underlying prerequisite …more Haven’t read it in its entirety yetbut R.

It will start you out with just static electric fields, then into magnetic fields and then how they work together dynamically. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. The first half teaches you to calculate electric fields created by unmoving charges and magnetic fields created by steady currents, both in empty space and in solid objects, by gradually introducing Maxwell’s equations and related ideas.

Introduction to Electrodynamics, 4th Edition

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Its lean and focused approach employs electrodyjamics new examples and problems. While students need to be quite comfortable with calculus to deal with the notation, the explanations are elementary and clear.


Sangat membantu untuk anda yang mau memahami gejala Elektromagnetik klasik secara mendasar dan teoritik. The one thing that I don’t like about this book is its solutions to problems which is the another book which I think was hastily and poorly written and don’t do e.j.griffiths to this book.

While students need to be quite comfortable with calculus to deal with the notation, the explanations are elementary Other than getting used to full vector notation in calculus, d.j.griffitgs is really no reason to teach from any other electrodynamics book at the undergraduate level. I love this book. The second half explores what happens when the charges move and accelerate.

Nov 17, Newton rated it it was amazing. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. Griffiths

Amazing clarity of explanations, thorough and genius treatment of somewhat abstract concepts, easy to parse appendices, and so much more make this the most outstanding, well-written textbook I have ever read not just in physics, but ever.

Jul 02, Mobin Shakeri rated it it was amazing. Jul 13, Philip rated it it was amazing. The one book which might give a tough competition to this book is Electricity and Magnetism by purcell. For an example, one of the later chapters in the book gives a brief introduction to the theory of special relativity.

I wish I had read it when, I first heard about electromagnetic fields. Still the explanations are clear and the main points are indicated in such a way that you cannot miss them. Shankar’s “Principles of Quantum Mechanics” offers a nice introduction with underlying prerequisite mechanics and mathematics.

The highly polished Fourth Edition features a clear, easy-to-understand treatment of the fundamentals of electromagnetic theory, providing a sound platform for the exploration of related applications AC circuits, antennas, transmission lines, plasmas, optics, etc. The first half teaches you to calculate electric fields created by unmoving charges and magnetic fiel “It can be covered comfortably in two semesters,” but unfortunately I’m not taking a class on this and don’t have two semesters to spend on it, so I had to skip or skim most of the math and read for definitions and basic ideas.


Equations and theorems are documented in such a way that they can be referenced effortlessly. The chapter beautifully explains the concept in a way and that other books centered on STR cannot. Griffith discusses experiment, history, and theory alongside one another. It gives students a good physical understanding of the subject and provides the tools a student needs to solve EM problems.

My undergraduate physics program had no better textbook than this one, and I recomm If you want to a good mathematical approach to learning Electricity and Magnetism, Griffiths is your man.

It can be more useful if used with “Classical Mechanics” introsuction Taylor. Erroneous passages have been corrected. As for notation, i-hat, j-hat and k-hat are dumb and add needless letter clutter.

Very good explanations, probably the best example problems of any textbook I’ve had, and very thorough.

Citations of recent literature appear throughout for those who wish to pursue a particular topic in greater depth. The problems in the book are average ones, not so hard and not so easy, so if you give some time to yourself, you can easily solve them.

Coulomb’s law, Biot-Savart law. However it does contain more practical problems from an Electrical Engineering perspective than does Griffiths.

It was so good, I read it twice! Books by David J.
