Abstract

This book grew out of a graduate-level course in electrodynamics that I have taught at the University of Arizona's College of Optical Sciences over the past six years. A typical student enrolled in the course is a first year graduate student in Optical Sciences, Electrical Engineering, or Physics, who has had some prior exposure to electromagnetic theory. The level of mathematics required for this subject is not particularly advanced; students are expected to be familiar with calculus, vector algebra, complex numbers, ordinary differential equations, and elementary aspects of the Fourier transform theory. Most of the mathematical tools and techniques needed for developing the theory of electrodynamics are in fact interwoven with the course material in the form of a section here, a chapter there, or a few problems at the end of each chapter. The student is thus motivated to learn the required mathematics in the relevant physical context whenever the need arises.
