Electricity and Magnetism

This topic outline is incomplete in many respects. Updates are being posted periodically.

These lecture notes are for
the advanced undergraduate course PHY331 and for the graduate course PHY530. In PHY331 only parts of the first 13 modules are used and some of the simpler exercises. In PHY530 parts of most earlier modules serve as review materials. More modules are covered and the focus is on more advanced applications/exercises.

Additional modules are planned for the graduate course PHY630.


A different set of lecture notes and slides for a one-semester introductory course on electricity and magnetism (PHY204) is available elsewhere:
