For one- or two-semester courses in Electromagnetics, Transmission Lines and Waves, and Electromagnetic Lines and Waves in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering departments. A first course in Introductory Electromagnetics is required for electrical engineering and computer engineering students.

This successful text with its versatile approach includes thorough coverage of statics with an emphasis on the dynamics of engineering electromagnetics. It integrates practical applications, numerical details, and completely covers all relevant principles.


  • NEW - More emphasis on time-varying fields.
    • Serves students' needs by providing a 21st-century electromagnetics education.
  • NEW - More flexible--Makes Part II more useful by indicating "Essential" or "Elective" topics.
    • Meets instructors' needs with this flexible approach, allowing them to tailor the text to suit their curriculum.
  • NEW - Added topics--Includes in Chapter 7 the topic of pulses on lossy lines.
    • Covers for students topics previously offered in higher-level courses.
  • NEW - Separation of variables and field mapping--Included in this new edition.
    • Enables students to recognize emerging advances in technology.
  • Comprehensive coverage of field and line topics--Begins with p-n junction and circuit elements, progresses through transmission-line time-domain analysis, goes to interconnections between logic gates, and culminates in crosstalk on transmission lines.
    • Provides students with material that is essential for them to fully comprehend, generally not covered by a more traditional approach.
  • Coverage of principles of guided waves--Gives a treatment for one-dimensional wave guides comprising parallel-plate metallic waveguides followed by dielectric slab waveguides.
    • Provides students with coverage of both electronics and photonics in one chapter, making learning easier.
  • Focus on numerical methods--Includes the finite-difference method; the method of moments; the finite-element method; and the finite-difference time-domain method.
    • Provides students with all numerical methods pertinent to undergraduate electromagnetics.
  • Solid pedagogy--Includes worked examples, drill problems with answers, marginal notes, and chapter summaries.
    • Enables students to extend and test their knowledge of concepts for each chapter before moving on.
  • Review problems--Follow the homework problems in every chapter.
    • Allows students to review material covered in each chapter.
  • Practical application discussions and experiment demonstrations.
    • Encourages students' interest in field concepts and phenomena.
