Deriving Maxwell's Equations

  1. Sep 23, 2011 #1
    I didn't know where to put this and it didn't apply to the template.

    As a study aid and to sate my masochism, I wanted to know, where can I see an exhaustive, step by step process of all of Maxwell's Equations (Gauss, Faraday and friends) being derived? Differential form, integral etc.

    H H Skilling, 'Fundamentals of Electric Waves'

    Ramo & Whinnery, 'Fields andd Waves in Modern Radio'

    These were some of my texts, back in the early 1960's. Aside form better graphics you won't find a better treatment I don't think.

    I'd start with the Skilling which if you can handle it is all you need for your purpose. R&W might gain extra insights for you.
