INTRODUCTION
.. ' .~.
Since certain branches of mathematics are more fluently used in classical electrodynamics, a short Jist of the more often used functions and mathematics should be presented before we discuss the solutions of the problems.
Vector and tensor analysis are prequisite because electric and magnetic fields arc vector fields which can be derived either from scalar or vector potential. The gradient, divergence, curl and Laplace's operator form the mathematical backbone of electricity and magnetism. The solutions of potential are usually represented by expansions in orthogonal of which coefficients of the expansion can be obtained by making use of the orthogonality properties. Fourier series expansion is one of the type. Suitable coordinates should be chosen for particular symmetry of the problem. Although it may be advantageous to know elliptical coordinates and generalized coordinates, they do not appear often in this book. Dirac delta function is often used to describe the location of discrete charge instead of charge distribution in integration. Complex plane for eonformal mapping, residue Integration In retarded solution duc to finite vcloclt'y of light and short duration of the source, and Green's functions are some of the special or general approaches to obtain potential. Classical Electrodynamics by Jackson gives a general discussion of mathematics whenever it Is, required, which is often sufficient to handle the problems.
The emphasis of the summary is primarily on the methods in solving the problems. The first part discusses electrostatics and magnetostatics. The techniques' of solving electrostatic problems In this' book are:
(1) Coulomb's law: It is a basic approach but is not convenient.
F = qE;
~  n (x~) S ~ (xx') 3, E (x) = i~ 1 qi Ixxill or y(x) Ixx'IJ d x
Due to the vector quantity of F and E, most of the problems are
solved by the potential concern. _.
(2) Potential: For electrostatic case: V x E = 0, hence th:. elt;£.tric field intensity E can be expressed in terms of potential E =V ell Potential 4> Is a scalar quantity ,so the superposition is the scalar sum of individual contribution of each of the sources or charge distributions. Several methods are used in potential problems, such as:
Gauss's law: It is a general consideration of a closed surface and. charge distribution inside the enclosed volume. The integral form of
Gauss's law '

and the equivalent differential form is
For a simple problem, if a Gaussian surface is constructed according to physical geometry of the problem, then the problem is solved. Otherwise,' Gauss's law gives Laplace's equation (V' ~ = 0) or Poisson's equation (V. 4> = 4 rr g), which serves as the starting
, point of most of the problems. The Laplace operator is geometry dependent. The special functions associated with coordinate systems are shown as the folloWing:

(c) Green's function G(x, x,  It is also a general method to obtain solution for potential. It is deduced from Green's theorem.

Method of image  It simplifies the problem to a great extent, however its application is limited to a simple geometries of the problems such us a charge and an inflntc constant potential conducting plate; two parallel conducting plates, with charge in between; a charge and a sphere with constant potential or added charge etc.
The images (rnagnit udes and positions) simulate the same boundary
. conditions specified by the conducting plane, sphere etc. after their removals. However the potential so calculated is good for the region where the actual chargcfs) is/are situated and is bound by the conducting plates,' sphere etc. In the treatment beyond this region, care should be taken. This happens when dlclect ric problems arc in concern. The potential inside and outside of the dielectric medium are lnterstlng.

where F (x, x') satisfies the Laplace's equation V'l F = O. For neumann boundary condition, the F (x. x') can be interpreted as external charge distribution to 'satisfy the boundary condition. The method of image illustrates that F (x, x') can be replaced physically by image charges. On the other hand. for Dirichlet problem with conductor, the potential U (x, ;c') due to the induced surface charge distribution on the conductor, is given by F (x, X'). For regular two dimensional geometry, this type of problems is more convenient to be solved by transformation, because f (x, x') or U (x, X') satisfies the Laplace's equation,

(a) In static equilibrium, E inside a conductor must be zero. A Gaussian surface is constructed just under the surface of the conductor
i.e, g = 0
inside the Gaussian surface.
(b) Construct a Gaussian surface inside the conductor just under the surface. Since there is no electric field inside the conductor. External field induces charges on the outer surface onlyand the electric field terminates al the outer surface.
Ein~idc = J
If there are charges inside the hollow cmductor the charges would induce equal and opposite charges on the Interla surace of the hollow conductor such that it encloses no net charges. There is no E Icld inside the conductor, but the excess charges of the same sign and quantity distributed on the outer surface, which produces electric field. The electric fic. d docs not depend on the dlstrlbution of charges inside the hollow conduc.or, but on the geometry of the hollow conductor.

The force on q is radially outwards from the center of the sphere. The total force on the sphere must be equal and opposite to that on the charge since the total force on any isolated system is zero.
(d) If the sphere, instead of being grounded is held a+ a fixed potential V, or is given a total charge Q, there is no change in the fields inside the sphere, in the charge density or its inner surface, or on the forces found in part (c).
The charge on the external surface is no longer zero, there is a field
V cll=r
for r ;> a.
and the internal potential is increased by V over the value given in part (a). The charge on the exterior of the surface of the sphere is Va, the charge on the interior surface is q as before, the total charge on the sphere is
Q = Vaq
Hence
V= Q+q a

x'+2na and q at x'  (2n+1 )a. Either grouping includes each charge precisely once. The Green's function, G(x,x') desired is the potential «P(x) due to unit charge at x'=(x,y,z). Thus, it is tempting to write as our solution

Note that the signs within and exterior to each factor have been adjusted so that the square brackets are positive for n=o, and that the terms in this case obviouslyhave the right sign. '
For large, I n] . , each of the terms in the braces is of order l/n2. Thus the' series will converge absolutely and the "Same result will be obtained if the positive and negative terms are summed separately, l.e., the order in the summation dues not mall cr.

This result could be derived by inspection from the fact that half of the lines of force from an isolated point charge cross any infinite plane surface that does not pass through the charge.
Unless we can sum the series before integrating, we can not compute the charge on just one plate since all the terms in our sum are of the form ±q/2 and there is no way in wh.ich the terms can be ordered so that the series converges in any conventional sense. If we pair the terms before summing, we could get the result q for either plate and zero for the other, but this is clearly an illegitimate conclusion. The situation is much worse than in the case of (1), since if we rearrange the two series of (I ) by picking the terms in an order such that the absolute value of the coefficient of a in term involving x ± x'never decreases, the Series will converge to the proper, unique value. BUI for the series after integration using (7) the series do not converge because no terms go to zero. 'If we wish to determine the total charge on BOTH plates, the problem again gets easy. By Eq(7), the Source point at x' contributes the charge q to the sum of the IWo integrals, ber.ause for n=O the numerator of the first term in the braces has the same sign in Eq(4) and in Eq(5). For all other image
source points, i.e. for all other n and for the second terms in each brace, the signs of the two terms are opposite and when the integrals over the two terms arc added they are, by Eq(7), zero. Thus the sum becomes

Solution on page 10. the discussion shows the potential and field of two infinite parallel plates. In that illustration we consider that the two plates meet at infinity and ~ = O. For two semiInfinite plates (diagram A), it seems that there are a lot of simularities, but the Schwarz transformation is much different.

The lines of force in the case of two infinite parallel plates are confined in between the two plates, but in the case of two semiinfinte plates, the lines of force originate (terminate) on both surfaces of eachplate. This means that we want to map the complete z plane to the upper half lot plane. The trick' is to insert a fictitious vertex to complete the quadrangle, however the space oflnterest is the complement of the quadrangle AKDG. If K and G are extended to infinity', then AK:wUl be equivalent to the acg; AG, to afg; BK, bdg and BG, beg. With this IinHt;' PI 0:; P •.. P3 = 211 and Pl = 0.·1 Hence from Eq(14), we have,

(J) Consider one side at potential V h all other sides at zero potentlal. Then the potential at the center is ct>(0) = XV I where X is a constant depending perhaps
on the geometry. .
(2) Now consider all sides at their different potentials VI . Because of the symmetry of the polyhedron, linear superposition gives
ct>(0) = X(V I + V 2 + •..• + V n)
(3) lfwe choose all Vi=V, then we know from the general properties of Laplace's equation that the potential at the center (or anywhere inside) is V. Thus
V = X (nV) or X = lIn. '

Since there is no charge at the center of the sphere, therefore Blm = O. After a little modifications, the expression becomes

In addition to orthogonality, the Legendre polynomials form a complete set. Let us assume. that the series given by Eq (3.23)

Using the orthogonality property expressed in Eq(3.21) we obtain

From which, since £' is a dummy variable (I.e. setting Q '= 1) 2H I +1
AQ= 2, 1'1 o(x)PQ(x)dx
By the conditions of the problem

or AQ =2 41T Rl J x = _II £(x)dx
where we have made use of the fact that flo= 4~ Rl is a constant. and consequently could be pulled out from the integrand, Eq(3.28) tells us that d

(4)
Solving for P,I! (x) we obtain:
PQ(x) = 2£1+1 <fx[P~ + I(X)PQ_I(x») Integrating the last expression from x 1 to Xl gives I (with x = cos 0)

As is known. the uniqueness theorem tells us that we can obtain one and only one Green function. i.c .• only one potential. In view of this theorem we may think it questionable whether we arc entitled to get more than one expression for such a Creen function. It turns out that we may have indeed several different ways  three in our .case at hand  in which this Green function may be expressed. The uniqueness theorem docs the job for us in guarantying that they arc all equivalent expressions. The fact is that in different situations one form of expressing the Green function may be more useful than the others; this explains why we do have three different form's for the Green function in this
problem. Refer to Eq (9). (17) and (23). '

Fur air at the given pressure range Clausius Mossott] relaiion holds and gives fairly gaud approximation. The Iractionul variations of (e  I) and the density are equivalent. For penltnc under high pressure (esp, 8,000 and 12,000 atmosphere), it gives bad approximation. But Clausius Mossoui relation holds best for dilute substances such as ideal gases.

(i) If q = 0, D' = D  2i • p. D' can be made to vanish if p :1= 0 merely by choosing a parallel or antiparallel to p and of magnitude I D 1/(2 I P 0,
(li) If p' = 0, but q :1= 0, D' = 0 by suitable choice of I aJonly if D and q have opposite signs.
(iii) If I pi and q are both nonzero, then the requirement D' .. 0 demands 0 = D  2a cosO I p I + a 2 q where cosO is the angle between a and p. Now it is useful conceptually to put D = q < r2 >, p = q < r >. The equation then reads a2  2a I <1> I cosO + < rl > = O. The question is whether this can be satisfied for some real positive a and I cosO I ~ I. The roots are a = I <7> I cosO ±..; I < r > 11 coslO  < r1 >. The argument of the square root must be positive for some 1 cosO 1 < I. This requires I <1> 11 ;;. < r'1 >, or 1 p 12 ;;. qO .. q'l < r'l >. If this condition Is not satisfied it is impossible to
make D' = O. ~
(Note that because of parity or timereversal, elementary particles or nuclei can have even electric and odd magnetic multipoles, but none other. Thus particles do not have electric dipole mornents.)

(a) Show that In general the numerical values of the multipole moments of a charge distribution 9 (it) depend on the choice of origin of the coordinate system, but that the lowest nonvanishing multlpole moment is independent of this choice.
(b) The usual traceless quadrupole moment tensor 0 is related to the , si~ple Cartesian quadrupole tensor O~tS follows: ap
"Q~ == 3 J 9 (x) xa"pd3x = O0{3 + q < r'l > 60{3
where q is the charge and < r'1 > is the mean square radius of the charge distribution. In general, for some initial choice of origin,

: ',::' Show that it is always possible to shift the origin so that q < r2 > vanishes, provided the dipole moment is nonzero and the

If a conductor or semiconductor has current flowing in it because of an applied electric field and a transverse magnetic field is applied, there develops a component of electric field in the direction orthogonal to both current flow and magnetic field, resulting in a voltage difference between the sides of the conductor. This phenomenon is known as the Hall effect.
(a) Use the known properties of electromagnetic fields under rotations and spatial reflections to show that for an isotropic medium the generalization of Ohm's law, correct to second order in the magnetic field, must have

(b) What about the requirements of timereversal invariance?
(a) With no magnetic field, E = IJ 01 is a statement of Ohm's law. With n applied, we seek general form, linear in 1, but up to second order in D, order, in H, for E. The unstated assumption is that quantities like go are replaced by functions of B . B. which when expanded in Taylor's series

and we can simplify the problem by inserting images. Since we arc more familiar with the electrical case, we first replace the actual problem, shown in Fig. I, by the equivalent electrostatic sltuatlons shown in Fig 2, 3, and 4.
In Fig. 4 we have replacedthe polarization by the effective surface charge, a = P. The mirror symmetry of Fig; 3 and 4 ensures that the lines of force arc normal 10 the plane when they cross it; hence, Ihe right hand half of Fig. J·and 4 gives the total field (of interest) in the actual problem. Since we know that the forces can be computed in terms of Ihe stresses in the fields and that these stresses arc numerically equal in the electrical and magnetic cases, we see that we get the same forces in all cases. The forces act across a thin layer of vacuum at the end of the cylinder: accordingly. we need not distlnguish between ii. rio E. or i5 there. If L is vcry long, the fields due 10 layers of charge at a distance L from the plane will be negligible: we need to consider only the two layers ± a separated by an infinitesimal distance.

V '. Thls section (chapter 6 to 10) deals with time varying fields and their applications. ,The time dependence of the electromagnetic field unveils various areas in electromagneiism such 'as radiation, wave propagation, electromagnetic interactions and bulk motion of conducting medium (magnetohydrodynarnics). One of the differences between the timevarying fields and the static fields is that the electric and magnetic fields are coupled. The Maxwell's equations stated in Eq(l) are the four fundamental equations of electromagnetism Involving space and time derivatives of E and B. the charge density q and the current density r. .

The contents In chapter 10 of the text Is not sufllclent for solving the problems. It is definitely necessary to refer to the references and suggested reading of this chapter. In solving these problems,' sometimes certain physical conditions or concepts are assumed. The two terms used in the Plasma problems need a word of explanation; "fluid" means an ensemble of mobile electrons; and 'ion' means heavier positively charged nuclel and are assumed to be "stationary". They serve as the background positivecharge distribution. The electrons are subjected only to the macroscopic fluctuations that may be taken as harmonic oscillation. Some variables may have initial values, in such cases, separate the variable into two parts. For example, initially a static magnetic induction has a value of Bo; then, the expression for magnetic induction as a function of time and posltlon can be written as
if (;, t) = Bo + B* ei(k. rwt) .
(b) If the other medium forms the walls of the pipe in which electromagnetic wave propagates, it is a problem of wave guide. However if one of the ends is closed, then it is a problem of cavity.
(i) Conducting walls wave guides
(ii) Dielectric wave guides
(iii) Resonant cavities.

The significant questions in wave guides are 0) how is the· energy transmitted; (2) what is the attenuation along the wave guide; and (3) what frequencies are al1o~ed? The general design of a wave guide is to obtain the highest efficiency and the lowest energy loss. In. other words, the choice of geometry, material of the wave guide walls, and inside the wave guide is to confine the energy t ravels along the axis of the wave guide, but not perpendicular to it. For some applications, the wave guide walls (usually metallic) are not necessary. Thl dielectric wav~. guide uses the boundary condit~n of normal D continuous condition and 1:1 ~ eo. Thenormal E nearly vanishes''\:i\tside the wave guide, but in practice the dielectric for low frequency 'c\_o~s not" satisfy the above mentioned condition' el ~ eo.'

An ideal circular parallel plate capacitor is connected to a current source as shown in the sketch. The current is I(t) = Locoswt. Calculate the electric and magnetic fields between the plates to second order (two terms of an expansion). Neglect fringing fields.
. J67·
This problem is discussed in great detail in Fcynrnan's "Lectures in Physics" Vol III pp 32. The space between the circular plates is purely electric in the case of D.C. to both sleclric and inagne_!,ic in the case of A,C, The production of time varying E field induces a 8 field and vice versa. It can be easily seen from Ampere's law and Faraday's law.

As the frequency increases. the Ampere slaw leads to \7 x I3 = c at  c J

And the exponential is regular for all finite values of the real parameters, x and t. Thus, we can apply Cauchy's theorem to the the contour C: f/ =.0, R ~ ~ ~ +R; e + f/2 = R", f/ > 0 and get

We notice that as R + +00, the integral along the real axis in Eq(2) approaches ET(x, t) as R + 00. Convergence is good because of the w2 in the denominator as long as x > 0 and II ;;;. O.
Therefore, what we must prove Is that if xct>O
then the integral along the semicircular arc in Eq(3) goes to zero. Let us write
n = 1 + a + ill ~<t1.;,: where both a and Il tend to zero as I w I + 00. Then the integrand along the arc becomes,

Hence, we must impose the further condition that j.J. goes to 'zero fast enough as I wi .... 00 that I ~IJ I is bounded on the arc. ytith t1}is condition we have the required result. It is to be noticed that this problem has been omitted In the second edition •.
