Download Multipole Theory in Electromagnetism: Classical, Quantum, by R. E. Raab PDF

By R. E. Raab

Raab and de Lange, either affiliated with the college of Chemical and actual technological know-how on the college of Natal, South Africa, provide a close advent to classical, quantum-mechanical, and symmetry features of multipole thought in electromagnetism. they give thought to either cost distribution in a vacuum and, through extension, in bulk subject, and supply an account of a few of the successes and screw ups of the direct program of multipole thought to macroscopic media. Required history features a wisdom of introductory electromagnetic idea and introductory non-relativistic quantum mechanics. The booklet is shipped within the US by way of Oxford collage Press
