 Electromagnetism and Relativity

 This page contains the most recent versions of the Electromagnetism and Relativity course material for Academic Year 2017/18. Lecture notes and tutorial sheets are also on the course Learn pages. Solutions to the tutorial problems will be provided throughout the semester. Solutions to all tutorial sheets (1-11) are available on the course Learn pages Last updated: Tue 28 Nov 2017 11:15:26 GMT

## Lecture Notes, Tutorial Sheets and Handouts

Any errors in the lecture notes and tutorial sheets (should!) have been corrected in these online versions.

Lecture notes are available in two formats:

• PDF: Portable Document Format. These notes should be viewable anywhere and printable on most printers.

• PDF-2: refers to `two up' PDF -- ie the format of the lecture handouts.
