    Advanced Electromagnetics-Electrical Engineering


For courses in Electromagnetic Fields & Waves. Electromagnetic Waves continues the applied approach used in the authors' successful Engineering Electromagnetics. The second book is appropriate for a second course in Electromagnetics that covers the topic of waves and the application of Maxwell's equations to electromagnetic events.


Demonstrates how electromagnetic concepts are important to modern electrical engineering applications.
More examples and problems than competing texts—All include references to current literature or practical applications.
Footnotes and biographies.

  • Motivates student interest and understanding.
An intuitive and progressive approach—Covers topics in order of increasing complexity.
Emphasis on physical understanding and clarityWithout sacrificing rigor and completeness.
Detailed examples, selected application examples, abundant illustrations, and numerous end-of-chapter problems emphasizing practical applications. Historical notes, abbreviated biographies, and hundreds of footnotes.
  • Motivates student interest and enhance understanding, and provides leads for further reading.
