3.0 out of 5 stars A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations, 3 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations (Paperback)
A good chapter on electric fields. The chapter on magnetic fields was poor in my view. Basic field equations were not derived and I am surprised when any text book uses symbols which they do not actually define.
A useful book apart from this criticism.

The author contacted me subsequently and asked me to give an example of an omision; he had tried to ensure that everything in the book was defined. I gave an example and was then offered a book from the Cambridge catalogue for spotting the omision. He said he will amend the text for the next edition.

The books were very expensive; no sign of one yet.

Thanks very much for your comments - I'm the author of this book, and it will be very helpful for future editions if you could give me an example of a symbol that is undefined in the text (the reason I put those large "expanded equations" in the book was to make sure every symbol is clearly defined, so I'm dismayed to learn that I apparently missed some). My e-mail is dfleisch@wittenberg.edu, or if you prefer, just post a response here. I realize that you may not have time to respond, but if you do, I appreciate your help in making this book useful for other students.
