In the limit of very large conductivity it is convenient to relate the current density J
in the force equation to the magnetic induction B via Ampere's law and to use the
infinite conductivity expression (10.9) to eliminate E from Faraday's law to yield ...
an independent equation, but may be derived by combining the last two
equations in (10.91). Since the force equation in (10.91) is independent of
magnetic field, we suspect that there exist solutions of a purely electrostatic
nature, with B = 0.
Consequently to complete our discussion we must consider the covariant
formulation of the Lorentz force equation and the conservation laws of
momentum and energy. The Lorentz force equation can be written as a force per
unit volume ...

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review

"Jackson E&M is about learning how to approximate reliably...the entire book, with few exceptions, is a mathematical discussion on how to solve [the same] 4 problems for different boundary conditions." Read full review
