This is an undergraduate textbook on the physics of electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetic fields and waves. It is written mainly with the physics student in mind, although it will also be of use to students of electrical and electronic engineering. The approach is concise but clear, and the authors have assumed that the reader will be familiar with the basic phenomena. The theory, however, is set out in a completely self-contained and coherent way and developed to the point where the reader can appreciate the beauty and coherence of the Maxwell equations. Throughout, the authors stress the relationships between microscopic structure of matter and the observed macroscopic electric and magnetic fields. The applications cover a wide range of topics, and each chapter ends with a set of problems with answers.

The author introduces the concept that superconductivity can establish a perfect formalism of electricity and magnetism. The correspondence of electric materials that exhibit perfect electrostatic shielding (E=0) in the static condition and superconductors that show perfect diamagnetism (B=0) is given to help readers understand the relationship between electricity and magnetism. Another helpful aspect with the introduction of the superconductivity feature perfect diamagnetism is that the correspondence in the development of the expression of magnetic energy and electric energy is clearly shown. Additionally, the basic mathematical operation and proofs are shown in an appendix, and there is full use of examples and exercises in each chapter with thorough answers.

Electromagnetism is basic to our understanding of the properties of matter and yet is often regarded as a difficult part of an under graduate physics course. In this book answers are developed from first principles to such questions as: What is electricity? What is electromagnetism? Why are some materials magnetic and others non-magnetic? What is magnetism? Physics answers these questions in two related ways. On the one hand the classical explanation is in terms of classical concepts: electric charge q, electric and magnetic fields (E and B) and electric currents. On the other hand the microscopic (or 'atomic ') explanation is in terms of quantum concepts: electrons, nuclei, electron orbits in atoms, electron spin and photons. Microscopic explanations underlie classical ones, but do not deny them. The great triumphs of classical physics are mechanics, gravitation, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and relativity. Historically they began at the time of Newton (seventeenth century) and were completed by Maxwell (nineteenth century) and Einstein (early twentieth century). Microscopic explanations began with J J. Thomson's discovery of the electron in 1897. For most physical phenomena it is best to seek a classical explanation first, especially phenomena at room temperature, or low energy, when quantum effects are small. Although this text is primarily concerned with classical explanations in a logical, self-consistent sequence, they are related to microscopic (quantum) explanations at each stage.

On the molecular scale all living processes must be understood in terms of electromagnetic fields and forces. The first half of this unique new text deals with the theory of electromagnetism suited to students trained in chemistry or biology. The second part treats biological topics as applications of the theory. These can also serve as an introduction to biology for students of the physical sciences.

The final volume in a three-part series, Electricity and Magnetism provides a detailed exposition of classical electric and magnetic fields and analyses of linear electric circuits. The book applies the principles of classical mechanics to systematically reveal the laws governing observed electric and magnetic phenomena. The text culminates in Maxwell's Equations, which, although only four in number, can completely describe all physical aspects of electromagnetism. The specific topics covered in Electricity and Magnetism include: Electric force, field, and potential Gauss's Law for Electric Fields Capacitance and networks of capacitors Electric current Resistance and networks of resistors Kirchoff's Rules Steady state and time-dependent DC circuit dynamics Magnetic force and field Production of magnetic fields Ampère's Law Gauss's Law for Magnetic Fields Faraday's Law Induction and inductance AC-driven circuit dynamics and energetics Maxwell's Equations and their plane-wave vacuum solutions This text extends the rigorous calculus-based introduction to classical physics begun in Elements of Mechanics. It may be studied independently of the second volume, Properties of Materials. With more than four hundred and fifty problems included, it can serve as a primary textbook in an introductory physics course, as a student supplement, or as an exam review for graduate or professional studies.
