Introduction: Electromagnetic Field Theory Pdf

Download Free Electromagnetic Field Theory Pdf, Classical electrodynamics deals with electric and magnetic fields and interactions caused by macroscopic distributions of electric charges and currents. This means that the concepts of localized electric charges and currents assume the validity of certain mathematical limiting processes in which it is considered possible for the charge and current distributions to be localized in infinitesimally small volumes of space. Clearly, this is in contradiction to electromagnetism on a truly microscopic scale, where charges and currents have to be treated as spatially extended objects and quantum corrections must be included. However, the limiting processes used will yield results which are correct on small as well as large macroscopic scales.

It took the genius of JAMES CLERK MAXWELL to unify electricity and magnetism into a super-theory, electromagnetism or classical electrodynamics (CED), and to realize that optics is a subfield of this super-theory. Early in the 20th century, Nobel laureate HENDRIK ANTOON LORENTZ took the electrodynamics theory further to the microscopic scale and also laid the foundation for the special theory of relativity, formulated by Nobel laureate ALBERT EINSTEIN in 1905. In the 1930s PAUL A. M. DIRAC expanded electrodynamics to a more symmetric form, including magnetic as well as electric charges.

In this chapter, we start with the force interactions in classical electrostatics and classical magnetostatics and introduce the static electric and magnetic fields and find two uncoupled systems of equations for them. Then we see how the conservation of electric charge and its relation to electric current leads to the dynamic connection between electricity and magnetism and how the two can be unified into one ‘supertheory’, classical electrodynamics, described by one system of coupled dynamic field equations—the Maxwell equations.

At the end of the chapter, we study Dirac’s symmetrized form of Maxwell’s equations by introducing (hypothetical) magnetic charges and magnetic currents into the theory. While not identified unambiguously in experiments yet, magnetic charges and currents make the theory much more appealing for instance by allowing for duality transformations in a most natural way.
