This introduction to electromagnetic waves emphasizesconcepts, examples, and problem-solving techniques having wide applicability,and relies only on basic physics and mathematics — rather thanelectrostatics, magnetostatics, and quasitatics. The focus is on genericproblem-solving techniques — both mathematical and physically-intuitive,and the presentation of basic electromagnetic theorems — Poynting,energy, uniqueness, and reciprocity — explained from a physicalperspective. Progresses from simple wave propagationin unbounded free space to antenna and resonator design. Presentsthe fundamental concepts of plane waves, phasors, polarization, energy,power, and force early — and repeatedly applies them throughoutthe text to problems with progressively more complex boundary conditions.For students and practicing engineers interested inelectromagnetic wave phenomena.
