This text derives the equations of electrostatics, magnetostatics and electromagnetics in material continua from the fundamental statements of Coulomb, Ampere, Faraday and Maxwell in a systematic way. The book is intended to provide graduate students in mechanics and applied mathematics, as well as faculty and appropriate research workers, with an understanding of electromagnetism and prepare them for studies on the interaction of the electric and magnetic fields with deformable solid continua. Careful attention is given to the description of the stored electric and magnetic energies and the prescription for the body force exerted by the fields on the material continuum.

This textbook is based on the lecture notes of a course on electromagnetisms for graduate students of mechanics held for several years at the Rensselaer Polytecnic Institute by the Author, one of the leading contributors to the theory and applications of piezoelectricity. As a textbook, it develops carefully the basic theory of electromagnetisms from scratch, starting from electrostatics, passing to magnetostatics and finally to the the full description of electromagnetic phenomenon: however, the background of its Author influences the contents of the book. Along with the clarity and simplicity of exposition which are usually associated with a deep knowledge of the subject, the book offers two more uncommon features. First, it develops the theory of electromagnetic fields in continua directly, i.e. without any assumption on the microscopic structure of the media: the Author carefully motivates his choice, and his point of view is quite convincing. Second, it develops accurately the general nonlinear theory, then shows that the linear theory is a particular (even if important) case of the general one. All this features make the book an ideal reading for graduates as well as undergraduate students which want to deepen their knowledge of the electromagnetic phenomena in matter: however, I give it "only" a four star score since the both the hardcover (original) and the paperback edition are still highly priced.

A Nice Little Book 11. Juni 2001
Von Michael R Goodman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I had the pleasure of taking courses from the author of this book for several semesters. I once asked him about the book, to which he replied, "It's a nice little book, isn't it?"
Indeed it is. The author is a specialist in non-linear continuum mechanics and, I believe, assembled the contents of this book as a necessary prerequisite to understanding his own research. The result is an eminently readable 150 page development of Maxwell's equations for regions occupied by continuous distributions of matter. The physical assumptions (Coulomb's law, Ampere's law, etc.) are kept to an absolute minimum, and the constitutive assumptions used to arrive at linearized field theories are made explicit. After reading this book, one cannot help but to cringe at the usual treatments of electromagnetic material properties (dielectric "constant", magnetic permeability, etc.). Towards the end of the book, there appears a brute force calculation demonstrating the Lorentz invariance of Maxwell's equations. I have yet to see this done elsewhere. Other rare treats include a discussion of the Lorentz local field, which must be excluded from the continuum description in order to arrive at a consistent field theory.
The notation employed throughout is a combination of Gibbs vector analysis and the standard "indicial notation" for cartesian tensors. Some prior exposure to these subjects is required. This book was my first true exposure to electromagnetism, and I have had no regrets since.
