Physics 305,  Advanced Electricity and Magnetism II

Joseph Ross, Texas A&M University

Spring 2012


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. You will likely have this text if you are continuing from Physics 304 in the fall semester.

(In case you have an uncorrected 1999 3rd edition, here is the list of text corrections.)
This course covers approximately the material in the last 6 chapters in the text.

In case of problems email me at .


Homework and lecture notes:

See the postings on the homework page as the course proceeds.
