David Jackson, 3rd Edition (Wiley, 1999) Lectures : I will try to make my lectures self-contained and my lecture notes will be posted on line. Jackson’s textbook will be a major source of homework problems and a valuable alternative perspective on the subject. We will start the second semester with the Lorentz covariance of Maxwell’s equations (Jackson, ch 11,12), and then return to Chapter 7-10, 13 and 14. Examinations : A midterm exam (TBA) will comprise 25% of your course grade and a ³nal examination (27 April 2011, 12:30-2:30) will comprise 50% of your course grade. Both exams will be closed book.
