About this title


Adapted from a successful and thoroughly field-tested Italian text, the first edition of Electromagnetic Waves was very well received. Its broad, integrated coverage of electromagnetic waves and their applications forms the cornerstone on which the author based this second edition. Working from Maxwell's equations to applications in optical communications and photonics, Electromagnetic Waves, Second Edition forges a link between basic physics and real-life problems in wave propagation and radiation.

Accomplished researcher and educator Carlo G. Someda uses a modern approach to the subject. Unlike other books in the field, it surveys all major areas of electromagnetic waves in a single treatment. The book begins with a detailed treatment of the mathematics of Maxwell's equations. It follows with a discussion of polarization, delves into propagation in various media, devotes four chapters to guided propagation, links the concepts to practical applications, and concludes with radiation, diffraction, coherence, and radiation statistics. This edition features many new and reworked problems, updated references and suggestions for further reading, a completely revised appendix on Bessel functions, and new definitions such as antenna effective height.

Illustrating the concepts with examples in every chapter, Electromagnetic Waves, Second Edition is an ideal introduction for those new to the field as well as a convenient reference for seasoned professionals.

About the Author:

Carlo G. Someda (retired) received the E.E., M.S.E.E. and Libera Docenza (Ph.D.) degrees, respectively from the University of Padova, Italy, in 1964, Stanford University, in 1966, and the Italian Ministry of Education, in 1971. While at Stanford he was a recipient of the Volta Fellowship of the IEEE. In 1972 he worked as a post-doc at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Holmdel, N.J., within a NATO scientific exchange program. He has also been a Visiting Scholar at the University of Arizona and Stanford University. Most of his research activity was done in Italy, at the Universities of Trieste, Bologna (where he became a Full Professor in 1976, and Head of the Electronics Department in 1978-81), and Padova, where he joined the Faculty of Engineering in 1982, and in 1999 he became the Director of an intensively industry-supported interdisciplinary Master program in Information and Communication Technology and Economics. His main field of technical interest since 1972 was optical communications and photonics; he also became involved in antennas and metamaterials. He has authored or co-authored about 175 research papers, and 5 textbooks, in Italian and English. Dr. Someda is on the Editorial Board of the series Optical and Fiber Communications Reports, Springer, New York. He is on the European Management Committee of the European Conference on Optical Communications, and was General Co-chair of ECOC03. He is a Distinguished Member of the Italian Electrical and Electronic Association, Vice-Chairman of Accademia Galileiana di Scienze Lettere ed Arti (a four-century old cultural institution founded by Galileo Galilei in Padova, Italy), a Member of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti, Venice, Italy (a two-century old cultural institution founded by Napoleon Bonaparte -, and a Senior Member of IEEE, New York.
