Maxwell's Equations of Electrodynamics: An Explanation
PDF ISBN: 9780819494535 | Print ISBN: 9780819494528
Maxwell's Equations of Electrodynamics: An Explanation is a concise discussion of Maxwell's four equations of electrodynamics-the fundamental theory of electricity, magnetism, and light. It guides readers step-by-step through the vector calculus and development of each equation. Pictures and diagrams illustrate what the equations mean in basic terms. The book not only provides a fundamental description of our universe but also explains how these equations predict the fact that light is better described as "electromagnetic radiation."
