Overview

Essentials of Electromagnetics for Engineering introduces the key physical and engineering principles of electromagnetics. Throughout the book, David de Wolf describes the intermediate steps in mathematical derivations that many other textbooks leave out. He covers in depth the concepts of fields and potentials and then progresses to magnetostatics, Maxwell's equations, electrodynamics and wave propagation, waveguides, transmission lines, and antennas. At each stage, de Wolf stresses the physical principles underlying the mathematical results. He also includes homework exercises, a separate chapter on numerical methods in electromagnetics, and a broad range of worked examples to illustrate important concepts. Solutions manual available.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of the hardback: 'De Wolf is clearly a highly experienced teacher and he has used his experience wisely in putting together a work that, I believe, makes a real advance in understanding what can be, after all, a rather dull and difficult subject if not skilfully presented.' H. Jones Contemporary Physics
Booknews
De Wolf (electrical engineering, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University) begins with Coulomb's law and simple electrostatics, then progresses to magnetostatics and Maxwell's equations. The textbook is intended for a two-semester electromagnetic field theory course taken by third-year undergraduates in electrical engineering. Annotation c.
