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.

The scalar potential is not unique — any constant can be added to V with
impunity, since this will not affect its gradient. If the divergence of a vector field (F)
vanishes (everywhere), then F can be expressed as the curl of a vector potential (
Example 5.12 Find the vector potential of an infinite solenoid with n turns per unit
length, radius R, and current / . Solution: This time we cannot use Eq. 5.64, since
the current itself extends to infinity. But here's a cute method that does the job.
Problem 5.22 Find the magnetic vector potential of a finite segment of straight
wire, carrying a current /. [Put the wire on the z axis, from z\ to z2, and use Eq.
5.64.] Check that your answer is consistent with Eq. 5.35. Problem 5.23 What
