Relativistic Electrodynamics

  1. Oct 24, 2016 #1
    Hey guys,
    Can you please refer some good books to refer to in studying relativistic Electrodynamics (introductory parts),
    covering the Maxwell's equations in tensor form the L-W potentials and other aspects.
    FYI am just a beginner in relativistic Electrodynamics.
    Thanks for the help.

    how about Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. Griffiths?

    well, Sheldon Cooper has to start off somewhere. :rolleyes:

    How about JD Jackson Classical Electrodynamics , a standard work for many of us. And don't get wrong-footed by the term classical :smile:

    Landau&Lifshitz vol. II is my favorite, because it's straight to the point. Maybe it's leaving out a bit too much of the steps in the calculations for the beginner. Then the book by Schwartz is perhaps better suited.
