Electromagnetics: History, Theory, And Applications
Robert S. Elliott
Electromagnetics History, Theory, and Applications A useful reference for engineers and physicists, the IEEE reprinting of this classic text provides a deep, fundamental understanding of electromagnetics. Each chapter begins with a pertinent historical overview that shows how special relativity can be used to develop a complete electromagnetic theory from Coulomb’s Law, with the needed relativity theory developed in an early chapter. Electromagnetics also contains many applications in the chapters covering electrostatics, magnetostatics, and electrodynamics, while the final three chapters of the book extend the electromagnetic theory to dielectric, magnetic, and conducting materials. Key features include:
- The development and use of special relativity to establish a complete electromagnetic theory based on Coulomb’s Law as the sole experimental postulate
- Historical introductions to each chapter
- Extensive treatment of electrical properties of materials in the final three chapters
Also in the series… Field Computation by Moment Methods by Roger F. Harrington, Syracuse University An IEEE reprinting of this classic 1968 edition, Field Computation by Moment Methods is the first book to explore the computation of electromagnetic fields by the method of moments—the most popular method to date for the numerical solution of electromagnetic field problems. It presents a unified approach to moment methods by employing the concepts of linear spaces and functional analysis. Written especially for those who have a minimal amount of experience in electromagnetic theory, theoretical and mathematical concepts are illustrated by examples that prepare readers with the skills they need to apply the method of moments to new, engineering-related problems. Key topics include:
- Electrostatic fields
- Two-dimensional electromagnetic fields
- Wire antennas and scatterers
- Multiport systems
- Transmission lines and waveguides
- Antenna systems
