The wealth of examples and alternative explanations makes it very approachable by students. More than 400 examples and exercises, exercising every topic in the book Includes 600 end-of-chapter problems, many of them applications or simplified applications Discusses the finite element, finite difference and method of moments in a dedicated chapter
Now in its Seventh Edition, Bill Hayt and John Buck's Engineering Electromagnetics is a classic book that has been updated for electromagnetics today. This widely respected book stresses fundamentals and problem solving, and discusses the material in an understandable, readable way. Numerous illustrations and analogies are provided to aid the reader in grasping difficult concepts. In addition, independent learning is facilitated by the presence of many examples and problems.
Engineers do not have the time to wade through rigorously theoretical books when trying to solve a problem. Beginners lack the expertise required to understand highly specialized treatments of individual topics. This is especially problematic for a field as broad as electromagnetics, which propagates into many diverse engineering fields. The time has come to find a middle ground. The Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics links theory to specific applications with an integrated approach to areas such as wireless communications, fiber optics, microwaves, radar, materials science, and even biomedical engineering. This book not only provides the necessary formulas, figures, and tables, but also the underlying theory and insight needed to formulate and solve real-world engineering problems. A team of international experts discusses fundamental concepts such as Maxwell equations, static fields, electromagnetic induction, transmission lines, waveguides, and electromagnetic compatibility. They also explore specific technologies, various numerical techniques used for computer-aided solutions, biological effects and safety standards, biomedical applications, and measuring electromagnetic properties of biological materials. With tables and graphs integrated into the discussion, each chapter is a nearly self-contained oasis of practical and theoretical problem-solving information for individual applications, with references directing you to more in-depth information. Appendices provide brief compilations of key constants and units as well as a tutorial on vector analysis and coordinate systems.
Engineering Electromagnetics presents a bold approach to the teaching of electromagnetics to the electrical engineering undergraduate. This book begins by adopting Maxwell's Equations as the fundamental laws, an approach contrary to the traditional presentation of physical laws in the chronological order of their discovery that starts with Coulomb's Law. The use of Maxwell's Equations provides broad physical laws of general applicability and prevents confusion among students as to when specific laws may be applied. A problem solving or engineering analysis approach is used extensively throughout this text. Real life problems are presented and then reduced to an appropriate model or facsimile for solution. This publication is intended for engineering students at junior or senior level.
Written from an engineering perspective, this unique resource describes the practical application of wavelets to the solution of electromagnetic field problems and in signal analysis with an even-handed treatment of the pros and cons. A key feature of this book is that the wavelet concepts have been described from the filter theory point of view that is familiar to researchers with an electrical engineering background. The book shows you how to design novel algorithms that enable you to solve electrically, large electromagnetic field problems using modest computational resources. It also provides you with new ideas in the design and development of unique waveforms for reliable target identification and practical radar signal analysis. The book includes more then 500 equations, and covers a wide range of topics, from numerical methods to signal processing aspects.
Electromagnetics is too important in too many fields for knowledge to be gathered on the fly. Knowing how to apply theoretical principles to the solutions of real engineering problems and the development of new technologies and solutions is critical. Engineering Electromagnetics: Applications provides such an understanding, demonstrating how to apply the underlying physical concepts within the particular context of the problem at hand. Comprising chapters drawn from the critically acclaimed Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics, this book supplies a focused treatment covering radar, wireless, satellite, and optical communication technologies. It also introduces various numerical techniques for computer-aided solutions to complex problems, emerging problems in biomedical applications, and techniques for measuring the biological properties of materials. Engineering Electromagnetics: Applications shares the broad experiences of leading experts regarding modern problems in electromagnetics.
Engineering Electromagnetics is a "classic" book that has been updated for electromagnetics in today's world. It is designed for introductory courses in electromagnetics or electromagnetic field theory at the junior-level, but can also be used as a professional reference. This widely respected book stresses fundamentals and problem solving and discusses the material in an understandable, readable way. Numerous illustrations and analogies are provided to the aid the reader in grasping difficult concepts. In addition, independent learning is facilitated by the presence of many examples and problems.
Electromagnetics is too important in too many fields for knowledge to be gathered on the fly. A deep understanding gained through structured presentation of concepts and practical problem solving is the best way to approach this important subject. Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics provides such an understanding, distilling the most important theoretical aspects and applying this knowledge to the formulation and solution of real engineering problems. Comprising chapters drawn from the critically acclaimed Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics, this book supplies a focused treatment that is ideal for specialists in areas such as medicine, communications, and remote sensing who have a need to understand and apply electromagnetic principles, but who are unfamiliar with the field. Here is what the critics have to say about the original work "...accompanied with practical engineering applications and useful illustrations, as well as a good selection of references ... those chapters that are devoted to areas that I am less familiar with, but currently have a need to address, have certainly been valuable to me. This book will therefore provide a useful resource for many engineers working in applied electromagnetics, particularly those in the early stages of their careers." -Alastair R. Ruddle, The IEE Online "...a tour of practical electromagnetics written by industry experts ... provides an excellent tour of the practical side of electromagnetics ... a useful reference for a wide range of electromagnetics problems ... a very useful and well-written compendium..." -Alfy Riddle, IEEE Microwave Magazine Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics lays the theoretical foundation for solving new and complex engineering problems involving electromagnetics.

This text provides students with the missing link that can help them master the basic principles of electromagnetics. The concept of vector fields is introduced by starting with clear definitions of position, distance, and base vectors. The symmetries of typical configurations are discussed in detail, including cylindrical, spherical, translational, and two-fold rotational symmetries. To avoid serious confusion between symbols with two indices, the text adopts a new notation: a letter with subscript 1-2 for the work done in moving a unit charge from point 2 to point 1, in which the subscript 1-2 mimics the difference in potentials, while the hyphen implies a sense of backward direction, from 2 to 1. This text includes 300 figures in which real data are drawn to scale. Many figures provide a three-dimensional view. Each subsection includes a number of examples that are solved by examining rigorous approaches in steps. Each subsection ends with straightforward exercises and answers through which students can check if they correctly understood the concepts. A total 350 examples and exercises are provided. At the end of each section, review questions are inserted to point out key concepts and relations discussed in the section. They are given with hints referring to the related equations and figures. The book contains a total of 280 end-of-chapter problems.
