Motivation: control of charged particle beams
To control a charged particle beam we use electromagnetic fields. Recall the
Lorentz force:
~ =q&middot; E
~ + ~v &times; B
~
F
where, in high energy machines, |~v | ≈ c ≈ 3 &middot; 108 m/s. In particle accelerators,
transverse deflection is usually given by magnetic fields, whereas acceleration can
only be given by electric fields.
Comparison of electric and magnetic force:

⇒ the magnetic force is much stronger then the electric one: in an accelerator, use
magnetic fields whenever possible.

Electromagnetism:
Static case

Static case
I We will consider relatively simple situations.
I The easiest circumstance is one in which nothing depends on the time—this is
called the static case:
I All charges are permanently fixed in space, or if they do move, they move as
a steady flow in a circuit (so ρ and j are constant in time).
I In these circumstances, all of the terms in the Maxwell equations which are time
derivatives of the field are zero. In this case, the Maxwell equations become:

electric field:
