Electrodynamics of Solids and Microwave Superconductivity (Wiley Series in Microwave & Optical Engineering)by Shu-ang Zhou
Synopses & Reviews
Die Elektrodynamik von Festkörpern ist ein interdisziplinär angelegtes Thema, zu dem elektromagnetische Phänomene, mechanische Bewegungen und Verformungen sowie Wärmeleitungen in festen Stoffen gleichermaßen beitragen. Dieses einführende und dennoch umfassende Lehrbuch zur Theorie der Elektrodynamik und Halbleitertechnik richtet sich an Physiker ebenso wie an Elektrotechniker, Maschinenbauer und Studenten der einschlägigen Fachrichtungen. (08/99)
Book News Annotation:
Provides an introductory theoretical foundation of solid electrodynamics and microwave superconductivity for applied physicists, electrical and mechanical engineers, and graduate students involved in theoretical and applied electromagnetics, continuum mechanics, applied superconductivity, engineering physics, high-speed electronic circuit design, microwave engineering, and transducer technology. Zhou emphasizes the synergy of various physical effects and their theoretical formulations applicable to engineering problems, often involving coupling of various physical effects and complex geometries in three dimension. Coverage includes the electrodynamics of Josephson junctions and circuits, and of deformable superconductors.
