Dr. N. Narayana Rao has designed this compact treatise in electromagnetics to fully reflect the evolution of technologies in both electrical and computer engineering. Dr. Rao develops most key concepts through the use of the simpler Cartesian coordinate system, while utilizing other coordinate systems wherever necessary to ensure that readers master the physical concepts and mathematical tools they need to understand electromagnetics.
Topics covered in this book include: uniform plane wave propagation; material media and their interaction with uniform plane wave fields; essentials of transmission-line analysis (both frequency- and time-domain); metallic waveguides; and Hertzian dipole field solutions. Material on cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems is presented in appendices, where it can be studied whenever relevant or convenient. Worked examples are presented throughout to illuminate (and in some cases extend) key concepts; each chapter also contains a summary and review questions.
Appropriate for anyone interested in learning more about electromagnetics.
