This comprehensive and self-contained resource conveniently combines advanced topics in electromagnetic theory, a high level of mathematical detail, and the well-established ubiquitous Method of Moments applied to the solution of practical wave-scattering and antenna problems formulated with surface, volume, and hybrid integral equations.
Originating from the graduate-level electrical engineering course that the author taught at the Technical University of Eindhoven (NL) from 2010 to 2017 this well-researched two-volume set is an ideal tool for self-study. The subject matter is presented with clear, engaging prose and explanatory illustrations in logical order. References to specialized texts are meticulously provided for the readers who wish to deepen and expand their mastery of a specific topic.
This book will be of great interest to graduate students, doctoral candidates and post-docs in electrical engineering and physics, and to industry professionals working in areas such as design of passive microwave/optical components or antennas, and development of electromagnetic software. Thanks to the detailed mathematical derivations of all the important theoretical results and the numerous worked examples, readers can expect to build a solid and structured knowledge of the physical, mathematical, and computational aspects of classical electromagnetism.
Volume 1 covers fundamental notions and theorems, static electric fields, stationary magnetic fields, properties of electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic waves and finishes with time-varying electromagnetic fields.
Volume 2 starts with Integral formulas and equivalence principles, the moves to cover spectral representations of electromagnetic fields, wave propagation in dispersive media, integral equations in electromagnetics and finishes with a comprehensive explanation of the Method of Moments.
