This question already has an answer here:

What are some good introductory book references on time-varying electromagnetic fields? I need a refresher on the physics background on this topic. I intend to do research in electric motor-related research.


Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

Introduction to Electrodynamics by David Griffiths has been a standard choice for a long time. You can't go wrong there. Not the only choice, but a good one.

  • $\begingroup$ It does not have an extensive discussion about time-varying electromagnetic fields. $\endgroup$ – qazwsx Oct 20 '15 at 21:16
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe you should refine your question then. Is the emphasis on introductory or on details of time varying fields? Those may not go together as much as you seem to want. $\endgroup$ – Brick Oct 20 '15 at 23:20
  • $\begingroup$ Since I gave the name of a normally considered narrow subarea of "time-varying EM", of course a general-purpose text without particularly good or extensive discussion about the subarea is not a particularly useful answer or even a viable one. I put the particular subarea of interest in the question for a reason. $\endgroup$ – qazwsx Oct 20 '15 at 23:47
