Full Description


Maxwell's Equations of Electrodynamicscomplete discussion of Maxwell's four equations of electrodynamics-the fundamental theory of electricity, magnetism, and light. Written for a general audience, it guides readers step-by-step through the vector calculus (yikes!) and development of each equation. Pictures and diagrams illustrate what the equations mean in basic terms. The book not only provides a fundamental description of our universe but also explains how these equations predict the fact that light is better described as ""electromagnetic radiation.
