Great Text Teaches 30+ years 25 de diciembre de 2012
Por OldTimePhD - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
With all due respect to the negative reviews, this book is the best treatment of Classical Electrodynamics at the GRADUATE PHYSICS PH.D. level that exists. It is clearly written from two points of view, that of a classical special functions treatment of the subject that is interlaced with deep insights from the perspective of a Physicist. Both of which are beyond standard treatments and rely upon one another. Thus it can be difficult to approach if unprepared with a thorough background in both special function theory and undergraduate elctro-magnetism under your belt. It is necessary to complete every problem to achieve the basic fundamental level required of most of the top ranked graduate programs. Average time per problem should be between 1/2-3 hours of hard work that clearly reinforces and extends the subject matter. Approaching this subject outside of a graduate program is possible with significant help and other resources. After nearly 30 years, I have returned to my copy time and again for help in conducting research. While somewhat outdated, the use of Gaussian units was typical of theorists as it made keeping track of annoying units and symbols easier. Since there is a lengthy conversion guide in the appendix, one sees little issue with using it to convert to another system. In short, all complaints should be ignored.

THE graduate text on electrodynamics 15 de julio de 1997

This is the textbook for the classic
weed-out graduate course in physics.
The problems are notorious. If you can solve
every problem in this book by age 24, then you

Jackson should be cloned 12 de julio de 2000
Por Alan Mason - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
This is the best physics book I have ever studied, and absolutely indispensable to anyone who has to solve real-world problems in electrodynamics!
Jackson's treatment of physics is elegant and crystal-clear throughout, and he generously includes material on Legendre functions, spherical harmonics, etc. that undergraduates may not have been exposed to. However, when it comes to the mathematical verifications needed to read the book with understanding, he doesn't hold your hand. This is as it should be! Physics is not the same as mathematics, but the latter is an essential tool that every physicist must master.
If you go through the book conscientiously checking and deriving all the equations, you'll end up filling a large notebook (amazingly, I didn't find any errors -- this book is rock-solid reliable). But the great thing is, you'll never have to do this again! Then you can reread Jackson without getting snowed under by what are essentially routine, but sometimes tedious, mathematical verifications; and you'll be free to savor the physics and really appreciate how great the book is. If you want some worked problems, look at The Classical Theory of Fields in the Landau-Lifshitz series. At the end of each chapter in Jackson there are excellent problems that will test your understanding.
The negative reviews of Jackson can only indicate a problem with how physics is taught in graduate school. Jackson's book has to be read carefully at least twice, and preferably N times; perhaps this is too much to expect from harassed graduate students in physics. I'm a mathematician by training and was able to study Jackson's book on my own and enjoy it without being rushed for time or having to worry about being tested. With the possible exception of the volume on quantum mechanics by Landau and Lifshitz, which again requires a lot of mathematical verifications, Jackson's book has no rivals.
It's a pity he didn't write any other physics textbooks.

The Ubiquitous Physics-student's text on Electromagnetism! 3 de febrero de 1997
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
This is the textbook every physicist knows about. The ubiquitous, maroon book: and it's right here at! We must all relish in the headaches this text gives us. It is one of those few gems that physics students both abhor and treasure as one of their most valuable resources. Often terse in its mathematical derivations; but by design we see how they do not interfere with the most important aspect of the topic: the interpretation of the mathematical results -- the "physics" behind the math.

Most of the problems in the book are "highly stimulating."

As many professors tell their students: "you are not a physics student if you haven't lived through Jackson's electrodynamics."

Warning to the Uninitiated 25 de enero de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
This book should not be used for dydactic purposes. As I have stated empathically for the second edition, this book (now even in revision) fails to teach. Though the book presents an admirable breadth of topics, it should not be considered a classic. The author frequently omits vital steps, and there are simply too few examples. Unless the reader has previously been exposed to the material, reading and understanding is a torturously onerous task and a waste of time.
The problems are usually challenging but occasionally a bit tedious. It seems to me that the use of Jackson as a standard text book is a bit akin to the use of wooden paddles in fraternity ceremonies. The professors got wacked and so must the next generation of uninitiates.
