Basic Electromagnetic Theory by James Babington

Basic Electromagnetic Theory by James Babington
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 11.2 mb
Overview: Basic Electromagnetic Theory is designed as a concise introduction to electromagnetic field theory emphasizing the physical foundations of the subject. It is aimed at both undergraduates and interested laypersons. It has been based on the author’s experience both as a former field theorist (working on quantum electrodynamics) and currently as an applied optical physicist. As such, it covers much material from the standard university syllabus. It also develops a number of themes in greater detail, so as to cover a number of non-standard topics that provide a fuller understanding of the subject. A key aspect to the book is the macroscopic approach to the subject from the outset. Most readers will have some familiarity with the standard mathematics employed, but a review chapter is provided at the beginning to help give some guidance on these topics as they are used throughout the book.

Algebraic Number Theory by Ian Stewart, David Tall

Algebraic Number Theory and Fermat’s Last Theorem, Fourth Edition by Ian Stewart, David Tall
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.3 Mb
Overview: Updated to reflect current research, Algebraic Number Theory and Fermat’s Last Theorem, Fourth Edition introduces fundamental ideas of algebraic numbers and explores one of the most intriguing stories in the history of mathematics―the quest for a proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem. The authors use this celebrated theorem to motivate a general study of the theory of algebraic numbers from a relatively concrete point of view. Students will see how Wiles’s proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem opened many new areas for future work.

Written by preeminent mathematicians Ian Stewart and David Tall, this text continues to teach students how to extend properties of natural numbers to more general number structures, including algebraic number fields and their rings of algebraic integers. It also explains how basic notions from the theory of algebraic numbers can be used to solve problems in number theory.
