Jackson for QED

  1. Jul 13, 2011 #1
    Hi all,

    I'd like to improve my understanding of classical electrodynamics, but as a UK PhD student my time for self-study is pretty limited- we don't make much time for general physics education at a graduate level. I was wondering if someone could recommend a short path through Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics, with particular emphasis on those parts relevant for QED- e.g. stuff relating to bremstrahlung and other radiative corrections. It's not that I can't be bothered to read the full thing, just that I don't have time right now to be slogging through waveguides etc. whilst I'm already trying to deepen my understanding of QFT and do research with what I do already know.

    Thanks in advance.

    You might try Landau & Lifgarbagez, The Classical Theory of Fields instead.
