Demonstrates how electromagnetic concepts are important to modern electrical engineering applications.
Detailed examples, selected application examples, abundant illustrations, and numerous end-of-chapter problems emphasizing practical applications.
For electrical engineers interested in electromagnetics.
Written for advanced undergraduate physics and engineering students, this textbook is an introduction to electromagnetic waves which emphasizes physical understanding and practical applications. Starting with Maxwell's equations, the authors (electrical engineering at the U. of Portland and Stanford U., separately) discuss the propagation of waves in empty space or material media, their reflection and refraction at planar boundaries, their guiding within metallic or dielectric boundaries, their interaction with matter, and their generation by simple sources.
