The course is a followup to Classical Electrodynamics I. Students are expected to be well versed with basic electrodynamics and basic mathematical methods such as elementary differential equations, fourier analysis and tensor calculus. The following is the list of books/resource materials that will be used:

(parts of) Chapters 1 - 9, Classical Field Theory, Landau and Lifshitz (Butterworth & Heinemann, fourth revised edition).

(parts of) Chapters 1, 3 and 4 from Radiative Processes in Astrophysics, Rybicki & Lightman

Occasional reference to Classical Electrodynamics, J. D. Jackson (Wiley Eastern, third edition).

The grading will be based on two quizzes (30%), one midterm (30%) and one final exam (40%). The quizzes will likely be closed book, and the midterm and final exams will be open book.
