Electromagnetics is too important in too many fields for knowledge to be gathered on the fly. Knowing how to apply theoretical principles to the solutions of real engineering problems and the development of new technologies and solutions is critical. Engineering Electromagnetics: Applications provides such an understanding, demonstrating how to apply the underlying physical concepts within the particular context of the problem at hand.
Comprising chapters drawn from the critically acclaimed Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics, this book supplies a focused treatment covering radar, wireless, satellite, and optical communication technologies. It also introduces various numerical techniques for computer-aided solutions to complex problems, emerging problems in biomedical applications, and techniques for measuring the biological properties of materials.
Engineering Electromagnetics: Applications shares the broad experiences of leading experts regarding modern problems in electromagnetics.
"…concerned with a number of important electromagnetic applications … The bio-electromagnetics chapters are particularly well equipped with references … those chapters that are devoted to areas that I am less familiar with, but currently have a need to address, have certainly been valuable to me. This book will therefore provide a useful resource for many engineers working in applied electromagnetics, particularly those in the early stages of their careers."
–Alastair R. Ruddle, The IEE Online
"[The book] is a tour of practical electromagnetics written by industry experts … fills a niche covering many industrial electromagnetic applications. Overall Dr. Bansal’s handbook is a very useful and well-written compendium."
