The first part covers both fundamental theories such as vector analysis, Maxwell s equations, boundary condition, and transmission line theory and advanced topics such as wave transformation, addition theorems, and fields in layered media in order to benefit students at all levels
The second part also examines fast algorithms for solving integral equations and hybrid techniques that combine different numerical methods to seek more efficient solutions of complicated electromagnetic problems
The second part of the book covers the major computational methods for numerical analysis of electromagnetic fields for engineering applications
Theory and Computation of Electromagnetic Fields, Second Edition Provides the foundation necessary for graduate students to learn and understand more advanced topics Discusses electromagnetic analysis in rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates Covers computational electromagnetics in both frequency and time domains Includes new and updated homework problems and examples Theory and Computation of Electromagnetic Fields, Second Edition is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate level electrical engineering students
These methods include the three fundamental approaches for numerical analysis of electromagnetic fields the finite difference method the finite difference time-domain method in particular , the finite element method, and the integral equation-based moment method
This book can also be used as a reference for professional engineers interested in learning about analysis and computation skills.
