"Life" after Griffiths EM
 
Hi,

I need a textbook on electrodynamics. I have already finished Griffiths electrodynamics, a wonderful book but it does not cover the things I need now from an EM book (i.e. research on photonics).

Therefore, I need a book which covers the mathematical methods on EM problems (eg. expansion on Bessel functions, Green functions, etc) and also be strong on the conseptual concepts of EM.

I am an undergraduate planning to apply next fall to grad school.

Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics is precisely what you ask for! You may also want to take a look at Classical Electromagnetic Theory by Vanderlinde (at a slightly lower level).

A non-Jackson book I like is Schwinger's Classical Electrodynamics book.

I like it........short chapters that cover one subject and allow for the digestion of the material.

The book Electromagnetic Processes by Robert J. Gould looked really interesting.

Thank you for your responses.
Just got Jackson's electrodynamics.
