Note

An relatively easy to read Mathematical Methods text with many worked examples. Covers more content than our text at about the same level.

Note

An harder to read Mathematical Methods text. Worked examples skip many steps. Covers tons of content at a much higher level than this text. A great graduate/professional resource.

Note

THE standard upper-level undergraduate text on electromagnetism. Easy to read. Many worked examples. The vector calculus portion of our text is mainly an expansion of chapters 1-3, 5 of Griffiths.

Excellent informal introduction to the geometry of vector calculus.
