This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics is intended for use in one- or two-semester courses in electromagnetics. It also serves as a reference for engineers. Widely acclaimed both in the U.S. and abroad, this authoritative text bridges the gap between circuits and new electromagnetics material. Ulaby begins coverage with transmission lines, leading students from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. A user-friendly approach, full-color figures and images, and a set of interactive simulations will help readers understand the concepts presented.
Electromagnetics for Engineering Students starts with an introduction to vector analysis and progressive chapters provide readers with information about dielectric materials, electrostatic and magnetostatic fields, as well as wave propagation in different situations. Each chapter is supported by many illustrative examples and solved problems which serve to explain the principles of the topics and enhance the knowledge of students. In addition to the coverage of classical topics in electromagnetics, the book explains advanced concepts and topics such as the application of multi-pole expansion for scalar and vector potentials, an in depth treatment for the topic of the scalar potential including the boundary-value problems in cylindrical and spherical coordinates systems, metamaterials, artificial magnetic conductors and the concept of negative refractive index. Key features of this textbook include: • detailed and easy-to follow presentation of mathematical analyses and problems • a total of 681 problems (162 illustrative examples, 88 solved problems, and 431 end of chapter problems) • an appendix of mathematical formulae and functions Electromagnetics for Engineering Students is an ideal textbook for first and second year engineering students who are learning about electromagnetism and related mathematical theorems.

No other EM books is better integrated with MATLAB. The second edition is even richer and easier to incorporate into course use with the new, self-paced MATLAB tutorials on the CD and available to registered users.
ELECTROMAGNETICS FOR A WIRELESS WORLD The revolution in wireless communications calls for a new focus in the electrical engineering curriculum. Stuart M. Wentworth pioneers this new approach with his new Applied Electromagnetics: Early Transmission Lines Approach. Incorporating the popular MATLAB program throughout, this book starts you off with a rock-solid foundation on such basics as static electric and magnetic fields, dynamic fields, and plane waves. It then prepares you for the new wireless world with a concerted focus on practical applications for wireless systems, transmission lines, waveguides (including optical fiber), antennas, and microwave systems. Numerous worked out examples, drill problems, and end-of-chapter problems will clarify your understanding of electromagnetics, and the many MATLAB examples and problems will ensure your mastery of the information. Intelligently designed and feature-packed, Wentworth's Applied Electromagnetics offers a rare marriage of detailed theoretical grounding and hands-on experience in harmony with today's professional practice. STUDENT COMPANION SITE Every new copy of Stuart Wentworth's Applied Electromagnetics comes with a registration code which allows access to the Student's Book Companion Site. On the Book Companion Site, the reader will find: Detailed Solutions to Odd-Numbered Problems in the text. Detailed Solutions to all Drill Problems from the text. MATLAB code for all the MATLAB examples in the text. Additional MATLAB demonstrations with code. This includes a Transmission Lines simulator created by the author. Weblinks to a vast array of resources for the engineering student. Go to www.wiley.com/college/wentworth to link to Applied Electromagnetics and the Student Companion Site. ABOUT THE PHOTO Passive RFID systems, consisting of readers and tags, are expected to replace barcodes as the primary means of identification, inventory, and billing of everyday items. The tags typically consist of an RFID chip placed on a flexible film containing a planar antenna. The antenna captures radiation from the reader's signal to power the tag electronics, which then responds to the reader's query. The PENI Tag (Product Emitting Numbering Identification Tag) shown, developed by the University of Pittsburgh in a team led by Professor Marlin H. Mickle, integrates the antenna with the rest of the tag electronics. RFID systems involve many electromagnetics concepts, including antennas, radiation, transmission lines, and microwave circuit components. (Photo courtesy of Marlin H. Mickle)

An accessible introduction to computer systems and architecture Anyone aspiring to more advanced studies in computer-related fields must gain an understanding of the two parallel aspects of the modern digital computer: programming methodology and the underlying machine architecture. The uniquely integrated approach of Computer Architecture and Organization connects the programmer's view of a computer system with the associated hardware and peripheral devices, providing a thorough, three-dimensional view of what goes on inside the machine. Covering all the major topics normally found in a first course in computer architecture, the text focuses on the essentials including the instruction set architecture (ISA), network-related issues, and programming methodology. Using "real world" case studies to put the information into perspective, the chapters examine: * Data representation * Arithmetic * The instruction set architecture * Datapath and Control * Languages and the machine * Memory * Buses and peripherals * Networking and communication * Advanced computer architecture A valuable feature of this book is the use of ARC, a subset of the SPARC processor, for an instruction set architecture. A platform-independent ARCTools suite, containing an assembler and simulator for the ARC ISA, that supports the examples used in the book is available. Better yet, the content is supplemented by online problem sets available through WileyPlus. Balanced and thoughtfully designed for use as either a classroom text or self-study guide, Computer Architecture and Organization: An Integrated Approach will put you solidly on track for advancing to higher levels in computer-related disciplines.

Recent advances in ultra-high-power lasers, including the free-electron laser, and impressive airborne demonstrations of laser weapons systems, such as the airborne laser, have shown the enormous potential of laser technology to revolutionize 21st century warfare. Military Laser Technology for Defense, includes only unclassified or declassified information. The book focuses on military applications that involve propagation of light through the atmosphere and provides basic relevant background technology. It describes high-power lasers and masers, including the free-electron laser. Further, Military Laser Technology for Defense addresses how laser technology can effectively mitigate six of the most pressing military threats of the 21st century: attack by missiles, terrorists, chemical and biological weapons, as well as difficulty in imaging in bad weather and threats from directed beam weapons and future nuclear weapons. The author believes that laser technology will revolutionize warfare in the 21st century.
