Dear Alexander,
There is no such textbook yet, although
Dr. Myron Evans is working on one at present. It should be a textbook
similar to Jackson's Classical
Electrodynamics, but in O(3) electrodynamics which is
actually a unified field theory engineerable by special electrodynamic
means.
A great deal of the advanced O(3)
electrodynamics is available in the following references:

Technologies," Journal of New Energy,

symmetry.

— "Classical electrodynamics without the
Lorentz condition: Extracting energy from the vacuum,"
Physica Scripta 61(5), May
2000, p. 513517. It is shown that if the Lorentz condition is
discarded, the MaxwellHeaviside field equations become the Lehnert
equations, indicating the presence of charge density and current density
in the vacuum. The Lehnert equations are a subset of the O(3) YangMills
field equations. Charge and current density in the vacuum are defined
straightforwardly in terms of the vector potential and scalar potential,
and are conceptually similar to Maxwell's displacement current, which
also occurs in the classical vacuum. A demonstration is made of the
existence of a time dependent classical vacuum polarization which
appears if the Lorentz condition is discarded. Vacuum charge and current
appear phenomenologically in the Lehnert equations but fundamentally in
the O(3) YangMills theory of classical electrodynamics. The latter also
allows for the possibility of the existence of vacuum topological
magnetic charge density and topological magnetic current density. Both
O(3) and Lehnert equations are superior to the MaxwellHeaviside
equations in being able to describe phenomena not amenable to the
latter. In theory, devices can be made to extract the energy associated
with vacuum charge and current.

M. W. Evans, T. E. Bearden, and A. Labounsky,
"The Most General Form of the Vector Potential in Electrodynamics,"
Foundations of Physics Letters,
15(3), June 2002, p. 245261. Abstract: The most general form of
the vector potential is deduced in curved spacetime using general
relativity. It is shown that the longitudinal and timelike components of
the vector potential exist in general and are richly structured.
Electromagnetic energy from the vacuum is given by the quaternion valued
canonical energymomentum. It is argued that a dipole intercepts such
energy and uses it for the generation of electromotive force.
Whittaker's U(1) decomposition of the scalar potential
applied to the potential between the poles of a dipole, shows that the
dipole continuously receives electromagnetic energy from the complex
plane and emits it in real space. The known broken 3symmetry of the
dipole results in a relaxation from 3flow symmetry to 4flow symmetry.
Considered with its clustering virtual charges of opposite sign, an
isolated charge becomes a set of composite dipoles, each having a
potential between its poles that, in U(1)
electrodynamics, is composed of the Whittaker structure and dynamics.
Thus the source charge continuously emits energy in all directions in
3space while obeying 4space energy conservation. This resolves the
long vexing problem of the association of the “source”
charge and its fields and potentials. In initiating 4flow symmetry
while breaking 3flow symmetry, the charge, as a set of dipoles,
initiates a reordering of a fraction of the surrounding vacuum energy,
with the reordering spreading in all directions at the speed of light
and involving canonical determinism between time currents and spacial
energy currents. This constitutes a giant, spreading negentropy which
continues as long as the dipole (or charge) is intact. Some implications
of this previously unsuspected giant negentropy are pointed out for the
Poynting energy flow theory, and as to how electrical circuits and loads
are powered.

derivatives and the operator definitions of quantum mechanics, gauge
invariant Proca and Lehnert equations are derived and the Lorenz
condition is eliminated in U(1) invariant
electrodynamics. It is shown that the structure of the gauge invariant
Lehnert equation is the same in an O(3) invariant theory
of electrodynamics

For a proper theoretical background, it
helps if one is familiar with the theory of groups, with nonAbelian
electrodynamics theory, a little particle physics, some general
relativity theory, quantum electrodynamics, quantum field theory, and
gauge field theory. Quaternion algebra is also an advantage. Any
background acquired in those subject areas puts the person in much
better shape.
Hope that helps.
