More About This Textbook


The Wiley Encyclopedia of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, edited by John G. Webster, remains the most comprehensive and authoritative resource in the electrical and electronics engineering field to date. Key features of the Encyclopedia include:

  • Each article written by expert in the field or discipline
  • Written for both novice and expert—articles are structured to start with basic material and then move on to more complex theory and applications
  • All articles cross-referenced to related literature of further research
  • Covers history of electrical and electronics engineering, patents, computer engineering and much more Wiley is committed to ensuring that the online version of the Encyclopedia continues to reflect the state-of-the-art in engineering and computer science through frequently updating and expanding the Encyclopedia.

If you are interested in contributing an article on one of the topics below, please contact the Associate Editor responsible for that technology. If your topic is not listed below, please contact Editor George Telecki at gtelecki@wiley.com.
Additionally, as a contributor, you will receive free online access to the entire Encyclopedia for one year or any period thereafter during which you are actively preparing updates (or remain willing to do so upon the Editor’s request).

    An astounding read

    The Wiley Encyclopaedia is one of those rare volumes you just cannot put down (or, for that matter, pick up). While this book is light on plot it is rich in technical detail, a haven for the fan of the more advanced techno-thriller. If you enjoyed the rollicking adventure of Der Neue Pauly or the engrossing characters in that perennial classic the Oxford English Dictionary, you'll be more than pleased with the depth and breadth of this magnificent work of technical literature. I cannot think of a better work to spend $10.000 on. Worth every penny.
