From the Back Cover
This is a successful book with a versatile approach including thorough coverage of statics with an emphasis on the dynamics of engineering electromagnetics. It integrates practical applications, numerical details, and the thorough coverage of principles.
- NEW—Two-part coverage: Fundamental Elements, and Applied Elements—Associates the chapters on Applied Elements with major technologies based on Maxwell's equations.
- Serves the needs of twenty-first century electromagnetics.
- NEW—Material on Crosstalk on Transmission Lines; Pulse Broadening in Dispersive Medium; and Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method.
- NEW—Review problems—Follow homework problems in each chapter.
- Serve as review of material covered in a chapter by integrating concepts introduced in more than one section of the chapter.
- Uniform plane waves—Presents topic immediately following Maxwell's equations chapters, which are introduced collectively, in integral form and then in differential form.
- Comprehensive coverage of field and line topics—Begins with p-n junction and circuit elements, progresses through transmission-line time-domain analysis, leading to interconnections between logic gates, and culminating in crosstalk on transmission lines.
- Coverage of principles of guided waves developed in one chapter—For both electronics and optoelectronics.
- Confines the treatment to one-dimensional wave guides comprising parallel-plate metallic waveguides followed by dielectric slab waveguides.
- Devotes a full chapter to pertinent topics of electronics and photonics—Ch. 10 including two-dimensional metallic waveguides and optical fibers; interference and diffraction; and wave propagation in an anisotropic medium.
- Focus on numerical methods—Comprising the finite-difference method; method of moments; finite-element method; and finite-difference time-domain method.
- Dynamic field approach—Builds basic material upon time varying fields while retaining important topics of static fields.
- Sinusoidal steady-state analysis of transmission lines.
- Familiarizes the reader with graphical and computer solutions.
- Radiation introduction followed by basic concepts of antennas.
- Demonstrates for the reader the complete field solution to the Hertzian dipole field through the magnetic vector potential.
- Solid pedagogy—105 worked examples, 162 drill problems with answers, marginal notes, chapter summaries, and review questions.
- Practical application discussions and experiment demonstrations.
