Classical Electrodynamics is a textbook about that subject written by theoretical particle and nuclear physicist John David Jackson. The book originated as lecture notes that Jackson prepared for teaching graduate -level electromagnetism first at McGill University and then at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The book is notorious for the difficulty of its problems, and its tendency to treat non-obvious conclusions as self-evident. Advanced topics treated in the first edition include magnetohydrodynamics , plasma physics , the vector form of Kirchhoff's diffraction theory , special relativity, and radiation emitted by moving and colliding charges. The necessary mathematical methods include vector calculus, ordinary and partial differential equations, Fourier series , and some special functions the Bessel functions and Legendre polynomials.

Jackson, John David Overview. Publication Timeline. Most widely held works about John David Jackson. Most widely held works by John David Jackson. Classical electrodynamics by John David Jackson Book editions published between and in 8 languages and held by 3, WorldCat member libraries worldwide This third edition of the title addresses the changes in emphasis and applications that have occurred in the past twenty years.
It covers all the basic and advanced topics in classical and semi-classical electrodynamics. The physics of elementary particles by John David Jackson Book 19 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide This is an introductory account of the physics of elementary particles and their interactions, with a minimum of formal apparatus and an ease of reading which, at present, is found in few other books in physics.
It is designed for graduate students and for physicists not specializing in the field. The various phenomena are interpreted and correlated largely by means of elementary theoretical arguments needing little background beyond a first course in quantum mechanics. Numerous references to the original literature will allow the reader to probe more deeply into the topics discussed.
Selected topics include scattering, photoproduction, K-mesons and hyperons, theoretical models, weak decay processes, and analysis of recent experiments on nonconservation of parity. Originally published in The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in Mathematics for quantum mechanics; an introductory survey of operators, eigenvalues, and linear vector spaces by John David Jackson Book 19 editions published between and in English and Italian and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Advanced undergraduates and graduate students studying quantum mechanics will find this text a valuable guide to mathematical methods.
Emphasizing the unity of a variety of different techniques, it is enduringly relevant to many physical systems outside the domain of quantum theory. Concise in its presentation, this text covers eigenvalue problems in classical physics, orthogonal functions and expansions, the Sturm-Liouville theory and linear operators on functions, and linear vector spaces.
Appendixes offer useful information on Bessel functions and Legendre functions and spherical harmonics. This introductory text's teachings offer a solid foundation to students beginning a serious study of quantum mechanics.

Historical roots of gauge invariance by John David Jackson Visual 2 editions published between and in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide J.
Jackson, Professor Emeritus, Dept. A number of reviews of gauge theories cover the period from about Wiley's major paper on the subject to the present. Lev Okun and Prof. Jackson address the prehistory of the subject, starting with Ampere, Neumann, Weber and others, and the debates over the correct form of the vector potential.
The story continues with Maxwell, Lorenz, Helmholz, Clausius, and Lorentz by which time the ideas of different, equivalent gauges for the potentials in classical electromagnetism had been clarified completely. They then discuss the annus mirabilus, , with Fock's discovery of the phase transformation of the wave function that must accompany a gauge change of the potentials.
The unfair belittlement of the contributions of Lorenz and Fock are aired. Portraits of all the electricians are presented as the story unfolds.
