Pressestimmen

'An outstanding achievement on so many levels, including scope, depth, insight, pedagogy, and historical background. It will become an instant classic.' John D. Joannopoulos, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

'Zangwill's recreation of classical electromagnetic theory will surely become the standard text on the subject. His comprehensive and scholarly treatment clarifies subtle points that are often ignored or concealed.' Sir Michael Berry, University of Bristol

'I am happy to recommend this book. It is carefully and creatively organized, clearly written, and has many, many interesting problems to solve.' Gerald A. Miller, University of Washington

'This book richly deserves the word 'modern' in its title. Zangwill develops an intuitive picture of electrodynamics that will be a great resource for all.' Rob Phillips, California Institute of Technology

'I am impressed by the careful and thorough way this book addresses subtle questions like the behavior of electromagnetic fields in dielectric matter. It will be an essential resource for both researchers and teachers who are not willing to sweep this and other delicate issues under the rug.' Alain Aspect, Institut d'Optique and Ecole Polytechnique

'Zangwill has written an excellent graduate textbook, with a large number of carefully chosen problems and examples. Boxes describing interesting and quirky applications add color to the presentation and references to quantum mechanics and modern topics will surely engage students.' R. Merlin, University of Michigan

'This comprehensive textbook gives refreshing insights into classical electrodynamics, with emphasis on the physics without sacrificing mathematical rigor. I particularly like the numerous worked examples and sections on applications, which show the relevance of the topics to modern research. The problems, with comprehensive solutions for the busy instructor, will be excellent for students to get to grips with the material.' Shirley Chiang, University of California, Davis

'I enjoyed examining this handsome book, finding favorite topics described in fresh ways and learning about other topics. Zangwill's writing and mathematical demonstrations are crisp and to the point, and they generally complement each other well. Sprinkled throughout are various gems of historical and scientific interest.' Roy F. Schwitters, Physics Today

'Modern Electrodynamics could make a hit in the textbook market and, more importantly, could have a serious impact on the future writing style of books on electromagnetics. This book is one of the best books about electrodynamics I have read, up to now. It greatly contributes to the development of physical understanding, is already used heavily within my research group, and is thus highly recommended.' Guy Vandenbosch, Radio Science Bulletin

Über das Produkt

An engaging writing style and a strong focus on the physics make this comprehensive, graduate-level textbook unique among existing classical electromagnetism textbooks. It features close to 120 worked examples, 80 applications boxes and nearly 600 end-of-chapter homework problems, with a solutions manual available to instructors at www.cambridge.org/Zangwill.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dieses Buch ist ein wahnsinnig umfangreiches und modernes Werk zur Elektrodynamik. Auf knapp 1000 Seiten beleuchtet Andrew Zangwill nahezu alle Aspekte der Elektrodynamik und geht dabei weit über die Grenzen üblicher Vorlesungsinhalte hinaus. Dabei schafft er es das ganze Buch hinweg alle Themen auf einem sehr hohen Niveau zu behandeln. Allerdings richtet sich das Buch in erster Linie an Studenten im Master bzw. im Hauptstudium sowie an Dozenten und setzt daher das Wissen aus Grundlagenvorlesungen voraus. Auch, wenn natürlich der Stoff der Grundlagenvorlesungen ebenfalls behandelt wird. Daher ist es ideal zur Vertiefung geeignet und bietet genug Freiräume bekannte Problemstellungen und Ansätze aus einem anderen Blickwinkel zu betrachten. Dennoch bleibt es dabei äußerst verständlich und leicht zu lesen. Das größte Augenmerkt legt der Autor auf die Vermittlung physikalischer Intuition und verweist auf entsprechende Quellen, wenn die mathematische Strenge keinen nennenswerten Mehrwert bringen würde. Unterstützt wird der Leser dabei durch die durchgehend gute Illustration des Buches, zahlreiche gelöste Beispielaufgaben und durch Einschübe moderner Entwicklungen, die in abgesetzten Infoboxen die Themen um aktuelle Erkenntnisse bereichern. Jedes Kapitel wird durch viele, auch sehr aktuelle Verweise auf weitere Literatur und Paper sowie durch im Schnitt 25 bis 30 umfangreiche Übungsaufgaben abgerundet, zu denen es allerdings leider nur für Dozenten die Lösungen auf der Verlagsseite gibt. In der Summe ist es Andrew Zangwill gelungen, eines der bedeutendsten Gebiete der Physik in die Moderne zu bringen und das in einem Umfang und einer Qualität, die ihrer gleichen suchen.

terrific text 15. Februar 2013
Von profmike - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It may sound perverse to describe an electrodynamics text as "exciting", but I find that adjective altogether appropriate when applied to Zangwill's book. Modern Electrodynamics is a remarkable achievement both in terms of the range of topics covered and the clarity and depth of the discussion. Having spent a large part of my life teaching electromagnetism at the graduate level, I was very interested in seeing how Zangwill handled various topics, and what kind of problems he throws at the reader. Roughly speaking, everything I know is in there and is well explained. In some areas, such as diffraction theory, he goes well beyond the bounds of my knowledge. His references to the literature and history of the subject leave one gasping. How could he read all that stuff in a single lifetime?

The preceding may scare off the student, or the instructor who is considering using this book as a text. Indeed, the instructor must make choices regarding which topics to emphasize and in how much detail. The book is comparable in mathematical sophistication to its principal competitor. However, Zangwill prefers to use more of his book's real estate on interesting worked examples and applications, and evidently believes that some of the mathematical details can, if not obvious, be learned from the instructor or from one of the books explicitly dedicated to mathematical physics. He also indicates clearly where to look if you want further discussion (beyond what is in his 977 pages) of any topic.

readable, enlightening and -- occasionally -- entertaining 10. April 2013
Von Jumping Jack Flash - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In Modern Electrodynamics Zangwill has produced an unusually well-thought-out graduate text on electromagnetism. It is user-friendly, both in terms of physics and in terms of layout. Let me begin with layout, whose effect on the reader should not be underestimated. Nearly every page seems to have some indication of not merely the chapter, but also of the section (and the sections are in small readable chunks). Examples are given within gray boxes. Comments are given within white boxes. Applications abound. Interesting and relevant quotations trumpet at the outset of each chapter. The font is familiar and appealing. The problems, perhaps half of which are original, and which are more geared to physics than mathematics, are identified in boldface before the problem is stated. This book is easily navigated, and for that reason readers will find it useful later as a reference work.

In terms of physics the book is reasonably complete without being exhausting (aficionados of particle detectors will lament the absence of transition radiation and energy deposition in matter, subjects once of great interest and still of great importance to particle physics). It is also well-organized. The author has clearly paid a great deal of attention to the modern literature on electrodynamics (hence the title?). This attention shows in some of the topics that are discussed: anapole moments (for the nuclear physics cognoscenti); the split-ring resonator, which can yield a negative magnetic permeability (for negative index of refraction and perfect lens application); the polarization of the cosmic microwave background; and the modern theory of dielectric polarization. This attention to the literature also shows in the homework problems (including an error by Einstein), in Applications that are interspersed throughout the text, and in the remarkably extensive Sources, References, and Additional Reading at the end of each chapter. Unlike most texts on electrodynamics, the present text is not totally devoted to the limit of infinite charge carrier density, which leads to zero screening length. The author presents Thomas-Fermi and Debye-Huckel screening and their finite screening lengths early on (for metals and for ionic conductors with fixed carrier density), and the Poisson-Boltzmann equation a bit later (where the carriers can move). Diffusion (relevant for semiconductors, and for ionic conductors -- such as humans) is also treated, if briefly.

Many will heave a sigh of relief to know that Zangwill eshews the fearsome phrase "it can be shown" and, when he does not derive an equation explicitly, he indicates clearly how the derivation should proceed (similar to the Landau and Lifshitz texts, which nearly always indicate the derivation, even when details are omitted). Modern Electrodynamics uses mathematics more for physical application than as a vehicle to teach mathematical physics (nevertheless it leads off with a chapter on relevant mathematics), and gives qualitative physical arguments to support the mathematical results.

If there is a defect, it is that the publisher did not put much effort into prettifying the figures; on p.269 where the interior Green's function for a dented beer can is considered, the can as drawn is sufficiently asymmetrical that the resulting Green's function would only be an approximation. Even so, one does appreciate with amusement that "slamming it into his head, a frustrated football fan dents the can". And, relevant to the text, that same fan, if a physics graduate student, will not be tempted to slam the book into his head, out of frustration. The book is both readable and enlightening -- and, occasionally, entertaining.

Excellent textbook 6. März 2013
Von Morski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The layout of this book is extremely well done. There's a really good balance between tech and derivations/equations that makes it very readable. I particularly like the use of embedded grey-colored subsections that give more detail on a topic. This method helps with keeping a good flow to the text while providing the student with the option of reviewing the subsection when more detail is desired. The content is excellently written... it makes me wish I was taking the authors class at Georgie Tech!

I'm using this to supplement Griffiths' book, which we're using in my EM Theory I class. The Griffiths book isn't bad, but it's a little unintuitive in parts.

Highly recommend for the undergraduate student majoring in Physics. There's a lot of good stuff here!

Finally a change... 23. April 2013
Von Dory H. A. Anselmo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have been lecturing a graduate course of Classical Electromagnetism over the last six years. Like many others, Jackson's was my first choice (together with Greiner's one). Now, with Zangwill book in my hands, I could see more clearly that both scope and detailing were wrong with previous books. The applications, the updated references, and the very good balancing of content of this book fits perfectly in a two-semester course.

The Problem sets of Modern ED & The Solution 26. März 2013
Von Jimbo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The book beats Jackson big time on comprehensibility, but to me, it is incomprehensible how he could've omitted The most important part of learning physics: Solutions to the problems. These are reserved Only for the instructor ! Why should he need them, other than laziness, since 99.9% of CED instructors are theorists & should be able to do the problems on their own. A certain professor at UF bragged to his students that he'd worked Every single problem in Jackson. I suspect he & JDJ are the Only ones on planet Earth who have, so intimidating, complexified, & time-consuming are they.
The grad student uncomfy w/contour integration & Green functions would be helped Enormously by seeing the solutions. At least include a subset of the problems w/solutions accessible to students, otherwise, they're left foundering in a binary haze: Did I get it right or wrong ?
