Book Description

Providing an ideal transition from introductory to advanced concepts, Electromagnetics, Second Edition builds a foundation that allows electrical engineers to confidently proceed with the development of advanced EM studies, research, and applications.

This second edition of a popular text continues to offer coverage that spans the entire field, from electrostatics to the integral solutions of Maxwell’s equations. The book provides a firm grounding in the fundamental concepts of electromagnetics and bolsters understanding through the use of classic examples in shielding, transmission lines, waveguides, propagation through various media, radiation, antennas, and scattering. Mathematical appendices present helpful background information in the areas of Fourier transforms, dyadics, and boundary value problems. The second edition adds a new and extensive chapter on integral equation methods with applications to guided waves, antennas, and scattering.

Utilizing the engaging style that made the first edition so appealing, this second edition continues to emphasize the most enduring and research-critical electromagnetic principles.
