Description

Suitable for use in a one-semester introduction for advanced undergraduates. Emphasizes relativity and symmetry in developing the theory of electrodynamics. Makes many advanced topics readily available to the student by focusing immediately on the Lorentz invariance of Maxwell's equations. Mathematica notebooks on the included diskette provide graphic solutions to many examples in the text.
