Elements of Electromagnetics 3RD Editionby Matthew N Sadiku
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Publisher Comments:Designed for the standard sophomore and juniorlevel course in electromagnetics, Elements of Electromagnetics, 3/e, continues the highly regarded pedagogical tradition established by its successful previous editions. It offers students the most lucid and interesting presentation available of
fundamental concepts and applications in electromagnetics. Revised and updated, this third edition adds a new chapter on modern topics covering microwaves, electromagnetic interference and compatibility, fiber optics, and more. Features DT Begins with vector analysis and applies it gradually throughout the text, avoiding the frequent interruptions that occur when mathematical background is interspersed sporadically throughout a text DT Incorporates many helpful pedagogical features including chapter introductions and summaries, boxed formulas, multiplechoice review questions, and thoroughly workedout examples followed by practice exercises DT Treats mathematical theorems separately from physical concepts, making it easier for students to grasp the theorems DT Devotes an entire chapter to modern computer tools used in electromagnetics DT Motivates student learning with more than 100 illustrative examples and over 600 figures DT Provides a balanced presentation of timevarying fields and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors Synopsis:The basic objective of this highly successful textto present the concepts of electromagnetics in a style that is clear and interesting to readis more fullyrealized in this Second Edition than ever before. Thoroughly updated and revised, this twosemester approach to fundamental concepts and applications in electromagnetics begins with vector analysiswhich is then applied throughout the text. A balanced presentation of timevarying fields and static fields prepares students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors. Mathematical theorems are treated separately from physical concepts. Students, therefore, do not need to review any more mathematics than their level of proficiency requires. Sadiku is wellknown for his excellent pedagogy, and this edition refines his approach even further. Studentoriented pedagogy comprises: chapter introductions showing how the forthcoming material relates to the previous chapter, summaries, boxed formulas, and multiple choice review questions with answers allowing students to gage their comprehension. Many new problems have been added throughout the text.
