This two-volume set consists of "Principles of Electromagnetic Waves and Materials, Second Edition" and "Advanced Electromagnetic Computation, Second Edition". Volume I takes an integrative approach to the subject of electromagnetics by supplementing quintessential "old school" information and methods with MATLAB® software. Volume II consists of advanced electromagnetic computation which focuses on Algorithms of Finite Differences, Moment Method, Finite Element method and Finite Difference Time Domain method. Hand-computed simple examples and MATLAB-coded simple examples with only a few elements are used to explain the concepts behind the algorithms. Four new chapters are included.
"This book covers a broad area of electromagnetism in various dielectric media. It can be used as the textbook of intermediate level electromagnetic (EM) courses and special topic courses, as well as the reference book of researchers working in EM and plasma areas."
—Spencer Kuo, New York University, USA
"Electromagnetic Waves, Materials, and Computation with MATLAB is a monumental presentation of Electromagnetics, with a wonderfully pedagogical approach and an incredible wealth of topics."
— Christophe Caloz, Polytechnique Montréal, Québec, Canada
