Introduction to Electromagnetic Theoryby George E Owen
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:A direct, stimulating approach to electromagnetic theory, this text employs matrices and matrix methods for the simple development of broad theorems. The author uses vector representation throughout the book, with numerous applications of Poissons equation and the Laplace equation (the latter occurring in both electronics and magnetic media). Contents include the electrostatics of point charges, distributions of charge, conductors and dielectrics, currents and circuits, and the Lorentz force and the magnetic field. Additional topics comprise the magnetic field of steady currents, induced electric fields, magnetic media, the Maxwell equations, radiation, and timevarying current circuits. Geared toward advanced undergraduate and firstyear graduate students, this text features a large selection of problems. It also contains useful appendixes on vector analysis, matrices, elliptic functions, partial differential equations, Fourier series, and conformal transformations. 228 illustrations by the author. Appendixes. Problems. Index. Book News Annotation:In this 1963 work, Owen (a professor of physics an Johns Hopkins U. at the time of publication) introduced electromagnetic theory in a presentation developed for undergraduate and firstyear graduate students. His text differed from standard presentations in developing the electric displacement field, incorporating contributions from quadrupole distributions and higher moments, but the larger topics addressed are standard. Other differences include the introduction of the Dirac delta function in relation to point configurations and continuous distributions and the use of matrix representation whenever possible.
