The Electromagnetic Interaction

  • Andrzej Derdzinski
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to provide an outline of classical electrodynamics, followed by its reformulation as a gauge theory. The latter approach can in turn be generalized to other interactions (see Chapter 5).
