**Class Meetings: ARC building (205), Tuesday & Friday, 12:00-1:20pm**

**Instructor: ** Kristjan Haule

E-mail: haule@physics.rutgers.edu

Office: Serin E267

Office hours: Friday 4pm

**Text: **Modern Electrodynamics, by Andrew Zangwill (chapters 1-15). Note: Zangwill's known typos

**Alternative** (more condesed classical) **text**: Classical Electrodynamics, by John David Jackson, John Wiley & Sons, (chapters 1 - 7)

**Homework: **There will normally be a homework assignment each week. Late homeworks will not be accepted without special permission, generally requested in advance. Homeworks will be graded and will be a significant contribution to your final grade (40%).

**Exams: **There will be one midterm exam (30%) and a final exam (30%). They will be in-class closed-book exams. You will be permitted to use your notes, and use of a calculator during exams.

**Gradebook:** access gradebook

Some versions of the book have the problems order in a slightly different way. This lead to the confusion in the homework assigned.

In my version of the book, the problems and their title are:

3.18="Ionization energy of a Model Hydrogen Atom"

3.24="The energy outside a Charged Volume"

4.1="Dipole moment practice"

4.3="The Charge density of a point electric dipole"

4.5="Point charge motion in an electric dipole field".

4.8="Two coplanar dipoles"

4.10="A spherical double layer"

4.14="Practice with cartesian multipole moments"

4.20="Practice with spherical multipoles"

4.23="Exterior multipoles for specified potential on a sphere"
