The present methodical Study Aid to Theoretical Physics Vol. 1 (Relativistic Theory and Electrodynamics) is written for several reasons. A thorough understanding of any part of theoretical physics is meaningless without applying the gained theoretical knowledge to the problems in different fields. There are already many interesting study aids available with a large number of collections of problems in electrodynamics. However, it is observed that students often refer to various study aids in search of a suitable study aid that accomplishes the goal of problem selections with applications. This process is often inconvenient and due to the different explanations causes misconstruction about the theories. To avoid this misapprehension, proper care has been taken while selecting the problems in this study aid and is in resonance with the order of topics discussed in the Theoretical Physics Vol. 1 (Relativistic Theory and Electrodynamics).
The study aid is divided in three parts:
Part I: Special Theory of Relativity
Part II: Electrodynamics in vacuum
Part III: Electrodynamics of continuous media
The introduction contains some elements of vector analysis. This serves as a basis in the sense that it carries the bulk of formulae used further in study aid. Most of the problems are solved but some of them are given with answers only which students can consider as home assignment. At the beginning of every chapter, short theoretical introduction of the topic is given along with the important formulae. We hope that this study aid to Theoretical Physics, vol. 1 will help students in applying their knowledge to solve different problems in relativity and electrodynamics which in turn can build up the confidence in understanding of theoretical physics.
