Cherenkov-effect + other EM relativity derivations: sources pls?

(Any help whatsoever is greatly appreciated)


I am looking for good online sources to help me understand relativistic formula's for the equations of Maxwell, and all the stuff that follows from it (like Cherenkov radiation).

I realise that's a pretty vague description, so if there is no general source that deals with all of this, I'm mostly looking for feedback on:

-the constitutive equations for moving media
-the Cherenkov effect
-the Fizeau experiment

.. and maybe some background on fourvector calculus, just for checkup (though I have the impression I'll figure it out by myself if I sit myself down for it).

I thank you in advance for your time and effort and enthusiasm too of course.

If you don't have what you need in Jackson's book (preferably the latest,III-rd edition),then you can check the free course (and exercises) here
