Description

Classical electromagnetism - one of the fundamental pillars of physics - is an important topic for all types of physicists from the theoretical to the applied. Although there are many books on this subject, hardly any are written in the question-and-answer style format adopted in this book.

  • Contains nearly 300 questions
  • Combines theory and computational work in one book
  • Comments sections emphasize important conclusions and historical aspects
  • Question-and-answer format adopted
  • Most of the mathematical techniques are dealt with in Chapter 1 and in the Appendices

About the Author(s)

J. Pierrus, Senior Lecturer, School of Chemistry and Physics, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

J. Pierrus has a background in experimental and computational physics. During the course of his career, he has published research in various areas including chemical physics, solid state physics, molecular optics and physics education. He has served as a reviewer for both the European and American Journals of Physics. As an experienced academic, he has developed teaching material in most areas of the core physics curriculum at the University of KwaZulu-Natal where he is a senior lecturer. He is a co-author of Solved problems in Classical Mechanics: Analytical and numerical solutions with comments, with this book being the second in that series.
