Engineering Electromagnetics

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 1999 - Science - 804 pages

"Engineering Electromagnetics" provides a solid foundation in electromagnetics fundamentals by emphasizing physical understanding and practical applications. Electromagnetics, with its requirements for abstract thinking, can prove challenging for students. The authors' physical and intuitive approach has produced a book that will inspire enthusiasm and interest for the material.
Benefiting from a review of electromagnetic curricula at several schools and repeated use in classroom settings, this text presents material in a rigorous yet readable manner.

FEATURES/BENEFITS

  • Starts with coverage of transmission lines before addressing fundamental laws, providing a smooth transition from circuits to electromagnetics.
  • Emphasizes physical understanding and the experimental bases of fundamental laws.
  • Offers detailed examples and numerous practical end-of-chapter problems, with each problem's topical content clearly identified.
  • Provides historical notes, abbreviated biographies, and hundreds of footnotes to motivate interest and enhance understanding.
