    Hi,

    Does anyone have any sources/links where I can get a basic introduction on Maxwell's equations? Preferably something which also covers vectors and possibly has some nice pictures and illustrations.

    Many thanks.

    I used to have a T-shirt that said:

    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
    And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
    And God said,

    ( MAXWELL's EQUATIONS )

    and there was light.

    Any book on electrodynamics,

    Here are a few good ones:

    Engineering Electromagnetics by Hayt -- junior level electrical engineering book

    Classical Electromagnetic Radiation by Marion -- junior/senior level physics text

    Introduction to Electrodynamics by Griffiths -- junior/senior level physics text

    Classical Electrodynamics by Jackson -- standard graduate level physics text

    Fields and Waves in Communication Electronics by Ramo, Whinnery and Van Duzer -- graduate electrical engineering text

    Thanks for the suggestions, will have a look. I did some searching on the net and found some interesting and useful material:
