Classical field theory predicts how physical fields interact with matter, and is a logical precursor to quantum field theory. This introduction focuses purely on modern classical field theory, helping graduates and researchers build an understanding of classical field theory methods before embarking on future studies in quantum field by: 3.

The structure of field theories and their physical predictions are illustrated with compelling examples, making this book perfect as a text in a dedicated field theory course, for self-study, or as a reference for those interested in classical field theory, advanced electromagnetism, or general by: 2. A first course of Classical field theory usually involves the field theoretic versions of the concepts learnt in Classical Mechanics viz. Euler Lagrange equations, Noether's theorem, Symmetries etc. and abstraction of the setting of Maxwell equati.
A good starting point is electromagnetism as covered in Griffiths “Introduction to Electrodynamics”. There you learn all the basics of vector fields in 3 dimensional space and in the later chapters the Lagrangian formulation in terms of U(1) value. methods of classical relativistic eld theory. Scalar elds, spinor elds, gauge elds, and gravitational elds are treated. The material is based upon lecture notes for a course I teach from time to time at Utah State University on Classical Field Theory. This version, , is . I also have Classical Theory of Fields by Landau but its content and way of expression is not relevant with my book. The question which you people are saying is a possible duplicate of was asked by myself and in that question I tried to find a good book on Classical Field here I need help to read a particular book on the same subject. The fourth edition contains seven new sections with chapters on General Relativity, Gravitational Waves and Relativistic Cosmology. The text has been thoroughly revised and additional problems inserted. The Complete course of Theoretical Physics by Landau and Lifshitz, recognized as two of the world's outstanding physicists, is published in full by Butterworth-Heinemann/5(5).
