If you do a forum search for "Jackson", you'll probably turn up leads to other textbooks at that level. Restrict the search to "This forum" instead of "Everywhere".

Jackson'sClassical Electrodynamicsis (or at least has been) pretty commonly used

Sorry to interrupt the thread. But this really caught my eyes!

I thought it is still widely used. What other textbooks are used currently as a replacement to Jackson's?

I merely intended that as a "weasel phrase" in case things have changed since I was in grad school 40 years ago.I thought it is still widely used.

Both these books are quite mathematically rigorous.

I think it strange you prefer mathematically rigorous books and then prefer Griffith.

I found Griffith Quantum Mechanics to (attempt to) solve some of his sample problems without doing any math at all.

If you want something like electrodynamics for mathematicians, then Jackson is not what you are looking for. Instead, try withMy preference leans toward more mathematical rigorous books

- Garrity, Electricity and Magnetism for Mathematicians

- Hehl and Obukhov, Foundations of Classical Electrodynamics

- Parrott, Relativistic Electrodynamics and Differential Geometry
