Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed for the standard sophomore- and junior-level 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. A solutions manual accompanies the text.

Features

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

Incorporates many helpful pedagogical features including chapter introductions and summaries, boxed formulas, multiple-choice review questions, and thoroughly worked-out examples followed by practice exercises

Treats mathematical theorems separately from physical concepts, making it easier for students to grasp the theorems

Devotes an entire chapter to modern computer tools used in electromagnetics

Motivates student learning with more than 100 illustrative examples and over 600 figures

Provides a balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors

Synopsis:

Elements of Electromagnetics, Fourth Edition, uses a vectors-first approach to explain electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields, waves, and applications like transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas. It also provides a balanced presentation of time-varying and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors.

Streamlined to facilitate student understanding, this edition features worked examples in every chapter that explain how to use the theory presented in the text to solve different kinds of problems. Numerical methods, including MATLAB and vector analysis, are also included to help students analyze situations that they are likely to encounter in industry practice.

Elements of Electromagnetics, Fourth Edition, is designed for introductory undergraduate courses in electromagnetics. An Instructor's Solutions Manual (co-authored by Sudarshan Rao Nelatury of Penn State Erie, The Behrend College) and PowerPoint slides of all figures in the text are available to adopters.

About the Author

Matthew N. O. Sadiku is Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Prairie View A&M University. He is the author of more than one hundred professional papers and fifteen books, including Fundamentals of Electric Circuits (2002), Metropolitan Area Networks (1994), and Numerical Techniques in Electromagnetics (1992).

Table of Contents

Each chapter ends with a summary, review questions, and problems.
