Introduction to Electrodynamics
For junior/senior-level electricity and magnetism courses. This book is known for its clear, concise and accessible coverage of standard topics in a logical and pedagogically sound order. The Third Edition features a clear, accessible 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.). Its lean and focused approach employs numerous examples and problems.

Figure 1.36 also shows three unit vectors, r, 6, $, pointing in the direction of
increase of the corresponding coordinates. They constitute an orthogonal (
mutually perpendicular) basis set (just like x, y, z), and any vector A can be
expressed in ...
Problem 1.40 Compute the gradient and Laplacian of the function T — r(cos 9 +
sin 9 cos 0). Check the Laplacian by converting T to Cartesian coordinates and
using Eq. 1 .42. Test the gradient theorem for this function, using the path shown
Coordinates. A.l. Introduction. In this Appendix I sketch proofs of the three
fundamental theorems of vector calculus. My aim is to convey the essence of the
argument, not to track down every epsilon and delta. A much more elegant,
