He specializes in classical electrodynamics and quantum mechanics as well as elementary particles, and has written textbooks on all three subjects.

Reviews

I'd recommend this book to anyone in the field and anyone lecturing in it. It's wonderful. Reading any section will always yield insights, and you can't go wrong with Griffiths as a guide. ( Times Higher Education Supplement , December 2009) A clearly written textbook balancing intuitive understanding and mathematical rigour, emphasizing elementary particle theory.
