# Physics 304, Advanced Electricity and Magnetism I

# Joseph Ross, Texas A&M University

# Fall 2011

## General course information:

The course syllabus is found at this link.
The required text,
*Introduction to Electrodynamics* (Third Edition), by Griffiths, should be in the
bookstores. This course covers approximately the material in the first 6 chapters in the
text. The follow-on course Physics 305 is a continuation, and uses the same
text.

(In case you come across an uncorrected 1999 3rd edition, here is the list of text
corrections.)

**Problem sets** will be posted at the homework
page as the semester proceeds, while
solutions and lecture slides will appear on the elearning
page for this course.

**Exams:** See here for a sample first exam, and
its solution. A sample exam 2 can by
found by following this
link, and the solution is here,
while a sample final exam can by found by following this
link, and its solutions here.

In case of problems email me at .

Fourier Series from MathWorld.

A nice list of
integration tables you can purchase.

Here is the Wikipedia
