A theoretical physicist, he was a member of the National Academy of Sciences , and is well known for numerous publications and summer-school lectures in nuclear and particle physics , as well as his widely used graduate text on classical electrodynamics. Jackson's high standards and admonitory vocabulary are the subject of an amusing memorial volume by his son Ian Jackson. Jackson held academic appointments successively at McGill University , thanks to Philip Russell Wallace , a prominent Canadian theoretical physicist, January — ; then the University of Illinois at Urbana—Champaign — ; and finally the University of California, Berkeley — At the latter, he held appointments on campus and at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. After retiring from teaching in , he continued to be active at LBNL. At McGill in the s, in addition to appreciable teaching, Jackson found time for research on atomic processes and nuclear reactions at intermediate energies and the beginnings of his book on classical electricity and magnetism.

John David Jackson's "Classical Electrodynamics" 3rd ed. Those who pass enjoy forcing the same pain on the next generation. Well, here's some help in that regard. Solutions from the problems assigned during the , , , and first half of classes at the University of Michigan, taught by different professors.
For the lazy among you, zip files of each section are provided for bulk download, but as these were added in later no guarantee is made as to the equivalence of filenames between the zipfiles and the linked files. I have posted every solution that I have available, so while I do appreciate any feedback and comments about this page and its contents, please don't e-mail me asking for solutions that haven't been posted. This is all I have. I've had e-mails from students around the world either thanking me for making this available or asking questions about the solutions.
I want to thank everyone for making this the 1 Jackson solutions site in the world! If anyone has an equivalent solution set i. The solutions for the year were by Jianming Qian, by Georg Raithel, and by James Liu.
They can also be found at his Ephysics Wiki page for discussion and erratas. People from around the world use this resource, and I'd love to keep it available for everyone. It has been paying for itself since March , and will stay up as long as it continues to do so. If you use this site, and have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating via the paypal button below.
It'll only take 30 seconds. I hope all of this was as useful to you as it was to me. Help the next generation by putting your own solutions online for their enlightenment. Physics a.
