Electromagnetic theory is fundamental to electrical and electronic engineering. Advances in high-speed digital electronics and in opto-electronics will present problems which cannot be solved without an understanding of electromagnetic theory. In this book the subject of electromagnetic theory is introduced in a physical and intuitive way making use of elementary mathematics. The emphasis is on the physical understanding which is the basis for solving problems. Those who need to understand the full mathematical treatment of this theory may find that this book provides a good starting point. Engineers generally prefer to work with circuit theory than with field theory and microwave engineers normally work with transmission line equivalent circuits whenever possible. A major concern of this book is with the way in which these equivalent circuits are developed. The content of the book may be divided into three parts, in the first the emphasis is on the basic properties of electromagnetic waves and the second section deals systematically with the applications of the theory to a wide range of components and devices. Many of these applications are in microwave engineering, but optical and emc (electromagnetic capability) topics are included wherever appropriate. The final part of the book discusses microwave and emc measuring techniques and provides an overview of the applications of electromagnetic waves in a variety of systems. The aim of the author is to give the reader a basic knowledge of electromagnetism which will make the professional literature of the subject accessible. A list of references has been provided for this purpose and a small number of exercises are grouped at the end of each chapter to help the reader to understand the main points in the text, to give confidence in handling the ideas and to give a feel for the numbers involved. This book is intended to carry on from the point the author reached in his previous book "Electromagnetism for Electronic Engineers" and aims to be useful not only to students, but also to those who discover the need for a knowledge of electromagnetic theory later in their careers.
