Virtually every four-year electrical and computer engineering program requires a course in electromagnetic fields and waves encompassing Maxwell's equations. Understanding and appreciating the laws of Nature that govern the speed of even the smallest computer chip or largest power line is fundamental for every electrical and computer engineer.

Fundamentals of Electromagnetics with MATLAB, 2nd Edition is much more than a mere textbook. The book itself offers a structural framework of principles, key equations, and problems. With that crucial supporting structure, each instructor, student or reader can turn to the supplemental files provided with this book or available online to customize and decorate each topic room.

This second edition is the result of extensive user feedback and includes a 100% standalone Transmission Line chapter for flexible course placement; expanded problem sets matched to text sections and checked for clarity; and separate chapters for Electrostatics and Magnetostatics.

Awful book. Explains nothing. No support group or anything out there. We are trying to use it for a course, and the teacher is as clueless as we are. I am learning nothing in this class, and I am just trying to get by. It has no mention of MATLAB in it, other then referring to dead links that no longer exist. The CD it comes with is utterly useless. The problems in the book are next to near impossible and make it outright hard to find ANY example to go off of. Please, teachers, do not use this book. This books website is not even complete. I wish this was not a required text, but sadly the Prof. wanted a MATLAB book. There are so many more choices out there, buyer beware.
