This textbook of electromagnetic theory, written for an advanced undergraduate course, is characterized by its pedagogical excellence and by an abundance of novel material, problems, and illustrative examples based on the author's original research and on his contributions to Maxwell's theory of electric and magnetic phenomena. Among the many unique and novel features of the book are: author's solutions of Maxwell's equations (now referred to in the scientific literature as the "Jefimenko's equations"), a comprehensive treatment of vector-analytical operations involving retarded field integrals, a detailed discussion of electric fields outside current-carrying conductors, spectacular line-of-force photographs of electric fields inside and outside current-carrying media, calculations of electric and magnetic fields from charge and current inhomogeneities, a remarkably simple derivation of Maxwell's stress integrals, the "thin shell" atomic model, Minkowski's equations for moving media, electromagnetic effects affecting space crafts moving through interplanetary or interstellar magnetic fields, a detailed analysis of Poynting's energy flux in and out a cylindrical conduit, the method of "equivalent currents," etc., etc. The presentation is clear, logical, thorough and thought-provoking. Employing the time-independent Maxwell's equations as the starting point, the theory is developed from the beginning on the basis of the Faraday-Maxwell concept of electric and magnetic fields. A generalization to the time-dependent Maxwell's equations is effortless and lucid. Vector analysis is introduced early in a self-contained chapter and is then used throughout the text as a standard mathematical tool. The exposition is purposeful and efficient. Careful distinction is made between the definitions, laws and consequences. The range of validity and the limitations of applicability of all the electric and magnetic laws are clearly stated. The book is written for the student and is designed to encourage a creative application of electromagnetic theory. For this purpose numerous carefully selected illustrative examples have been incorporated in the text and an excellent collection of problems has been supplied with each chapter. The format of the book is designed for easy readability. The book is set in the famous British Baskerville typeface, which is one of the most readable typefaces in existence. The format is further enhanced by numerous meticulously executed air-brush drawings. The book is printed on acid-free Fortune Matte paper and is bound in high grade "artificial leather" cloth. The book contains 598 pages of main text in 16 chapters, 544 problems, 243 illustrative examples, 249 figures, 12 plates of lines-of-force photographs and 10 tables. The DUST JACKET is no longer available, and is therefore not included.
|Causality, Electromagnetic Induction, and Gravitation: A Different Approach to the Theory of Electromagnetic and Gravitational Fields, 2nd edition|
by Oleg D. Jefimenko (Author)
This book is a strikingly new exploration of the fundamentals of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory and of Newton's theory of gravitation. Starting with an analysis of causality in the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction, the author discovers a series of heretofore unknown or overlooked electromagnetic interdependencies and equations. One of the most notable new results is the discovery that Maxwell's equations do not depict cause and effect relations between electromagnetic phenomena: causal...
|Electromagnetic Retardation and Theory of Relativity: New Chapters in the Classical Theory of Fields, Second Edition|
by Oleg D. Jefimenko (Author)
This book presents a comprehensive exposition of the theory of electromagnetic retardation and offers a significant novel approach to the formulation, development and use of the theory of special relativity. The book is divided into two parts. The first part, Chapters 1 to 5, presents the fundamentals of the theory of electromagnetic retardation with emphasis on recently developed electromagnetic relations and mathematical techniques. Employing as the starting point the retarded electromagnetic...
|Electrostatic Motors: Their History, Types and Principles of Operation|
by Oleg Jefimenko (Author), Thomas Valone (Editor), David K. Walker (Editor)
The most authoritative and comprehensive book on the subject of using high voltage electric charge to power a motor. The book shows the type of electrostatic motor that was first invented by Ben Franklin in 1748. It also reviews and illustrates electric pendulum motors, electric wind motors, Franklin's spark motors, capacitor motors, inductance motors, corona motors, liquid immersed motors, electret motors and more. The last chapter shows how the electrostatic motor can be designed to be...
|Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory: The Theoretical Minimum|
by Leonard Susskind (Author), Art Friedman (Author)
The third volume in the bestselling physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory
Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and...
|The Energy Machine of T. Henry Moray: Zero-Point Energy and Pulsed Plasma Physics|
by Moray B. King (Author)
Explains cold-current, free-energy devices. Using the 1920's inventions of T Henry Moray as a starting point, this book explores a wide range of popular science and frontier physics.
|OCCULT ETHER PHYSICS: 4th Revised and Expanded Edition: Tesla's "Ideal Flying Machine" and the Conspiracy to Conceal It|
by Mr. William R. Lyne (Author), Mr. William R. Lyne (Illustrator)
4th revised and expanded edition of the author's re-discovery of the scientific/technical basis for a space-propulsion system invented in the late 19th century by Nikola Tesla, now used in the secret flying machines known as "UFOs" or "flying saucers". Documentation follows the development of Tesla's theory which the author had to assemble like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. False propaganda is covertly maintained under national security laws. The technology has been concealed for over 70 years. A...
|Electrostatic Experiments: An Encyclopedia of Early Electrostatic Experiments, Demonstrations, Devices, and Apparatus|
by G. W. Francis (Author), Oleg D. Jefimenko (Editor)
Originally published in the middle of the nineteenth century under the title "Electrical Experiments", this book describes practically all basic electrostatic experiments, demonstrations, devices, and apparatus performed and invented since the time when the first electrostatic effects were noticed in antiquity up to about 1850. The book is unique in its comprehensiveness and provides all essential details for replicating over 400 electrostatic experiments and for reconstructing numerous...
|Alternate Currents Of High Potential And High Frequency|

|T.T. Brown's Electrogravitics Research|
by T.T. Brown (Author), Thomas Valone (Editor), PhD (Editor)
A widely published report with added material found no where else. Introduces the subject of electrogravitics.
by Harold E Ensle (Author)
This book is a supplement to The Electromagnetic Universe. It takes into account observations of advanced alien technology. These are important observations that seem to suggest that momentum really is not conserved. The book applies what was learned in that book to explain these observations.
