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.

(I have dropped terms involving derivatives of J, because J does not depend on x
, y, z.) The second term integrates to zero, as we'll see in the next paragraph. The
first term involves the divergence we were at pains to calculate in Chapter 1 ...
€0 with V - A0 in place of p/eO as the "source." And we know how to solve
Poisson's equation — that's what electrostatics is all about ("given the charge
distribution, find the potential"). In particular, if p goes to zero at infinity, the
solution is Eq.
David Jeffery Griffiths. So the divergence is right; how about the curl? V x F = V x (
V x W) = -V2W + V(V-W). (B.7) (Since the curl of a gradient is zero, the U term
drops out.) Now -V2W = --^- (cV2(-J dx' = f C(r')8\r-r')dr' = C(r), which is perfect — I'
