Intermediate Electromagnetic Theory

Paperback (Print)
Not Available on


This textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in physics and electrical engineering discusses the theory and applications of electricity and magnetism. Stewart's (formerly with the National Science Foundation) emphasis is on optics and topics related to research instrumentation. Explanations of mathematical concepts such as Bessel Functions and Legendre Polynomials are integrated throughout the text. A sampling of topics includes electrostatics, the optics of plane waves, and relativity. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
