Hey guys, Im wondering whether there is any book out there that approaches EM field using differential form and on the same or more advanced than Jackson, I have a solid knowledge of differential form and algebraic topology, thanks :D

The only book that uses Cartan calculus in classical electrodynamics is

F. W. Hehl, Y. N. Obukhov, Foundations of classical electrodynamics, Birkhäuser, Boston (2003)

Ryder's QFT text and Baez' text on Gauge Fields (and pretty much any covariant classical field theory text) but you won't be seeing nearly as many applications or in-depth calculations as in Jackson (for obvious reasons-the Cartan calculus while elegant is not very pragmatic for practical EM problems).

yeah but I want to look at EM field in a topological point of view rather than caculate it :D
