Overview


Elements of Electromagnetics, Fifth Edition, uses a vectors-first approach to explain electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields, waves, and applications like transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas. The book 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, Fifth Edition, is designed for introductory undergraduate courses in electromagnetics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In switching to Sadiku's book, the improvement on understanding how vectors work is substantial, approximately a 30-35% increase in scores. If you're forced into a one-semester 3-hour course, you're not going to get a better book than this."--Dennis McCaughey, George Mason University

"The new textbook is an excellent book. It provides clear presentations to the mathematical formulas, physics insight, and practical applications."--Fan Yang, The University of Mississippi

"It has a more refreshing approach to connecting theory to practical examples."--Kasra Daneshvar, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

"Sadiku's book seems more 'reader friendly' in terms of the layouts and printing qualities. . . . This book is doing a very good job on problems/solutions. The problems are stated clearly and there are some new questions available."--Yan Zhang, University of Oklahoma

"The scope as well as the number of HW problems is good. It shows balance between easy and challenging problems. . . . It is more detail oriented than Ulaby, represents substance, and it covers more material. The Matlab scripts have added value, and the problems appear to have an excellent mix of breath and depth."--Reinhold Ludwig, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
