Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gauss's law for electric fields, Gauss's law for magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and the Ampere-Maxwell law are four of the most influential equations in science. In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain-language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms. The final chapter shows how Maxwell's equations may be combined to produce the wave equation, the basis for the electromagnetic theory of light. This book is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. A website hosted by the author at www.cambridge.org/9780521701471 contains interactive solutions to every problem in the text as well as audio podcasts to walk students through each chapter.

As a designer of radio communications antennas, I've been driven to
understand the basics if the physics involved in electrimagnetic radiation.
It's preety scarey stuff and witha firm grasp of Differential equatiins,
you might as well be reading Sanscrit, while wearing dark sunglasses.
Prof. Fleisch is able to remove those blinders and translate those weird
looking mathimatical notations into understandable English.
I was impressed by his clear direct explaintations. I was so excited that
I was actually understanding this mysterious phenomonon, that I decided
that i also needed to purchase his book titled: "A Student's Guide to Vectors
and Tensors " These are also important topics in Physics and Engineering,
about which i am clueless. However, i am confident that Daniel's clear and
simple explainations will push back the shroud of mystery and all will be revealed.
