Description of Electromagnetics

Electromagnetics book is intended as a text for a first-year graduate sequence in engineering electromagnetics. Ideally, such a sequence provides a transition period during which a student can solidify his or her understanding of fundamental concepts before proceeding to specialized areas of research.
The assumed background of the reader is limited to standard undergraduate topics in physics and mathematics. Worthy of explicit mention are complex arithmetic, vector analysis, ordinary differential equations, and certain topics normally covered in a “signals and systems” course (e.g., convolution and the Fourier transform). Further analytical tools, such as contour integration, dyadic analysis, and separation of variables, are covered in a self-contained mathematical appendix.
The organization of the Electromagnetics book is in six chapters. In Chapter 1 we present essential background on the field concept, as well as information related specifically to the electromagnetic field and its sources. Chapter 2 is concerned with a presentation of Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism. Here attention is given to several useful forms of Maxwell’s equations, the nature of the four field quantities and of the postulate in general, some fundamental theorems, and the wave nature of the time-varying field. The electrostatic and magnetostatic cases are treated in Chapter 3. In Chapter 4 we cover the representation of the field in the frequency domains: both temporal and spatial. Here the behavior of common engineering materials is also given some attention. The use of potential functions is discussed in Chapter 5, along with other field decompositions including the solenoidal–lamellar, transverse–longitudinal, and TE–TM types. Finally, in Chapter 6 we present the powerful integral solution to Maxwell’s equations by the method of Stratton and Chu. A main mathematical appendix near the end of the book contains brief but sufficient treatments of Fourier analysis, vector transport theorems, complex-plane integration, dyadic analysis, and boundary value problems. Several subsidiary appendices provide useful tables of identities, transforms, and so on.
We would like to express our deep gratitude to those persons who contributed to the development of the Electromagnetics book. The reciprocity-based derivation of the Stratton–Chu formula was provided by Prof. Dennis Nyquist, as was the material on wave reflection from multiple layers. The groundwork for our discussion of the Kronig–Kramers relations was provided by Michael Havrilla, and material on the time-domain reflection coefficient was developed by Jungwook Suk. We owe thanks to Prof. Leo Kempel, Dr. David Infante, and Dr. Ahmet Kizilay for carefully reading large portions of the manuscript during its preparation, and to Christopher Coleman for helping to prepare the figures. We are indebted to Dr. John E. Ross for kindly permitting us to employ one of his computer programs for scattering from a sphere and another for numerical Fourier transformation. Helpful comments and suggestions on the figures were provided by Beth Lannon–Cloud. 
Thanks to Dr. C. L. Tondo of T & T Techworks, Inc., for assistance with the LaTeX macros that were responsible for the layout of the Electromagnetics book. Finally, we would like to thank the staff members of CRC Press — Evelyn Meany, Sara Seltzer, Elena Meyers, Helena Redshaw, Jonathan Pennell, Joette Lynch, and Nora Konopka — for their guidance and support.
