About

Features

  • presents mathematical and physical problem-solving techniques in a way that can be extended to other subjects besides electromagnetic waves.
  • interesting practical problems are provided throughout, and are the basis for end-of-chapter problems.
  • progresses from simple wave propagation in unbounded free space to antenna and resonator design.
  • begins directly with Maxwell's equations and their solutions in unbounded free space.
  • covers the fundamental concepts of plane waves, phasors, polarization, energy, power, and force, and then applies them repeatedly throughout to problems with progressively more complex boundary conditions.
  • uses “back-of-the-envelope” approximations throughout, and in some cases compares alternate problem-solving approaches — both mathematical and physically-intuitive.
  • repeatedly presents — in different contexts —the relationship between electromagnetic field descriptions and electrical circuits.

This introduction to electromagnetic waves emphasizes concepts, examples, and problem-solving techniques having wide applicability, and relies only on basic physics and mathematics — rather than electrostatics, magnetostatics, and quasitatics. The focus is on generic problem-solving techniques — both mathematical and physically-intuitive, and the presentation of basic electromagnetic theorems — Poynting, energy, uniqueness, and reciprocity — explained from a physical perspective. KEY TOPICS: Progresses from simple wave propagation in unbounded free space to antenna and resonator design. Presents the fundamental concepts of plane waves, phasors, polarization, energy, power, and force early — and repeatedly applies them throughout the text to problems with progressively more complex boundary conditions. MARKET: For students and practicing engineers interested in electromagnetic wave phenomena.
