Providing an ideal transition from introductory to advanced concepts, this book builds a foundation that allows electrical engineers to confidently proceed with the development of advanced EM studies, research, and applications. New topics include quasistatics, vector spherical wave functions, and wave matrices. Several application-oriented sections covering guided waves and transmission lines, particle dynamics, shielding, electromagnetic material characterization, and antennas have also been added. Mathematical appendices present helpful background information in the areas of Fourier transforms, dyadics, and boundary value problems.
Provides extensive end-of-chapter problems.Includes numerous solved examples with detailed explanations and interpretations.Introduces the reader to numerical electromagnetics and integral equations.Each chapter offers an introduction to an important application of electromagnetics.Emphasizes fundamentals, while covering all of the important topics in electromagnetics.
