Jackson’s book needs no introduction. Because it covers just about everything in classical electrodynamics with unparalled mathematical rigor, it’s been the standard graduate textbook for electromagnetics.
In person, the book is actually quite thin for being the bible of electromagnetics. This is because almost no exposition is given for the concepts presented in the book. Equation after equation is thrown at you relentlessly, and the entire book is organized haphazardly. Pedagogically, the book is about as bad as it gets.
However, some of the expressions derived in the book can’t be found elsewhere, and the brutal problems will ensure that you KNOW electromagnetism.
It’s a book that will make start making sense after you make it through whatever first year graduate course you take, though at that point you probably won’t care theorists excluded. Electrodinamicaa a reference book. It’s not a textbook. It’s too short, it doesn’t develop anything. The only value to this textbook is that it makes you learn very hard PDE and general vector calculus theory.
But it doesn’t teach it at all, it just holds you accountable for it. Looking back at it after taking the course, it serves the purpose of reference book phenomenally.
But that’s not how I’m reviewing it, it’s the standard textbook and it’s arguably the worst textbook I’ve used. This and Peskin and Schroeder.
Again, it’s brilliant for reread about the topics when you already know it, but miserable to learn from. Their only value is learning the pages so iackson have a good reference guide for the rest of your career as a physicist. The book is canonical for a graduate level course on Electrodynamics.
Pretty comprehensive, albeit some topics are covered in different places scattered throughout the book. This edition is reasonably well made, considering the price. The binding is sewn, so the probability of pages falling down is low. It’s paperback, but I “hardcovered” mine with chipboard and cloth and it feels awesome.
I’m a first-year graduate student in the US, and I just used this book in a 3-months long course.
Jackson is definitely fine as a reference; it probably has the information you want, once you know what you WANT to look for: Jackson remains a great source of problems though, and solutions can be easily found online.
For a wide eyed young grad student this text can be Was! The math needed to solve the problems is presented in a haphazard way, not systematically as a mathematician should present it but just given as techniques that work with particular problems-true of the 2nd as well as claica 3rd. Derivations like in Lienard-Wiechert potentials are heuristic at best. Electrodnamica vector potential expressed as an integral over current density divided by distance seems to follow cogently-not rigorously.
jqckson A careful reading shows the author makes no attempt at an exhaustive comprehensive treatment but usually presents a brief description which happens to be good enough sometimes and gives the reader references to the more exhaustive treatments if not.
I disparagingly called this a reference book because it gave you references-not the interpretation taken by my pipe smoking, ascot wearing comrades. It branches off to various specialties. What a grad student needs is a guide and that’s what Jackson is.
The teacher probably should emphasize this point. The difficulty of the problems largely stems from not interpreting the problem correctly. You have to see what’s being said-maybe diagram it. Jackson for many was their first exposure to problems that couldn’t be solved in closed form-series solutions.
We’re comfortable with this in the computer age. In clsica of difficulty and pace, reading Jackson is like reading a journal paper, or rather journal papers bound together. Sometimes he skips about 20 steps and tells you it’s obvious how he got to the next equation. Even my professor and TA could not explain how Jackson arrived at some of his equations.
Also, some of the problems can be a bit tedious, with pages clasida pages of algebra. On the other hand, I did enjoy Jackson’s very rigorous approach. He covers topics concisely and comprehensively.
One of the most popular books for graduate level Electrodynamics and Magnetism class. It is very difficult to follow at times, but a very thorough book. A classic text to own. Slightly tough to make it a text for independent study, more of a text to use during a graduate class. It is worth purchasing a new copy because if you’re buying it you’re in grad school, and you’ll most likely keep this text forever.
Just in case you’re studying independently, most solutions to problems in the book are all online somewhere. However, the material is presented quite well and even to the point where I feel prospective autodidacts might need minimal outside assistance, provided they have a firm grasp on prerequisite materials.
