This page contains links for an introductory graduate course in Electrodynamics. For a more complete description of the course, please see the syllabi for Q1 or Q3, or click on the graphic embedded in this text to access the main course directory. All of the original material is copyrighted to prevent others from publishing it for profit. However, please feel free to use and distribute these course materials (profit free) to your students. Also, email submissions of solutions and revisions will be gladly accepted and acknowledged on this site (especially those involving computer symbolic manipulation, simulations, and visualization). Notes are available below for all three quarters. However, homework assignments and solutions are only available for  chapters 1-7 and 8,9,13 and 14 of (although some solutions for chapters 11 and 12, are available). Homework and exam solutions will only be posted for a few weeks after their due dates; however, they are available by request to Professors at other Universities (please send a regular-mail request written on letterhead to Mark Jarrell, Dept. of Physics, ML-0011, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati OH 45221-0011. Include your email address, and I will send you what I have). A http subdirectory for each chapter can be accessed by clicking on the corresponding graphic. Each of these subdirectories contains at least four files:  


  1. chap#.ps, notes for the chapter # (Postscript printer file)

  2. chap#.pdf, a PDF version of the notes (with embedded fonts)

  3. chap#.tex, a LaTeX version of chapter # notes (you will also need the latex macros, defs.tex)

  4. chap#.uu, a self-unpacking uuencoded file containing the corresponding postscript figures

To compile your essay (call it essay.tex) on the unix system:

  1. Make sure that the file essay.tex and all the necessary postscript figure files have been moved to your account.

  2. Use ssh (secure shell) to log on to wanderer.phy.uc.edu and move to the directory with the files.

  3. To log on, use the same username and password you use for email.

  4. To compile your (debugged) LaTeX file into postscript, type

/usr/local/bin/kdelatex_2_ps essay.tex

  1. To compile your (debugged) LaTeX file into pdf, type

/usr/local/bin/kdelatex_2_pdf essay.tex .


To hand in your essay and the figures, please either give me a floppy or leave one the unix system. To do the latter:


  1. Move all of the files (essay.tex, essay.ps, essay.pdf, fig1.ps...) associated with your essay to your home directory on any unix machine on the physics network.

  2. Log on to any physics unix machine and change to your home directory

cd.

  1. Change the protection of these files so that they are accessible

chmod a+r essay.tex, essay.ps, essay.pdf, fig1.ps...

  1. Change the protection of your home directory so that these files can be accessed

cd ..; chmod a+rx yourusername

  1. Send me an email (jarrellphysics@gmail.com) indicating which files to copy.

  2. Once your essay is posted, you may want to change the protection of your home directory so that others cannot access it

cd; cd ..; chmod a-rx yourusername
