A good understanding of electromagnetics is vital to anyone working with electrical currents. Electromagnetics, electrostatics and magnetostatics are the foundation for microwaves, biomedical imaging and circuit design. Understanding this foundation well is the basis for a successful career in electronics-realted fields. Sadiku's Elements of Electromagnetics fourth edition is designed for the introductory course in electromagnetics for electrical and computer engineering undergraduates. Taking a vectors-first approach, Sadiku explains electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields and waves, as well as applicatiosn like transmission lines, waveguides and antennsas. The book provides a balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors. The text is oriented to student learning. Thoroughly worked-out examples followed by practice exercises in every chapter show students how to use theory, and how to confirm they understand it. Numerical methods, including MATLAB programming , and a rigourous understanding of vector analysis are included in the text so students can analyse situattions they encounter in real life and industry. Essential formulas are boxed, and students are encouraged to derive other formulas rather than memorising excessively. it incorporates many helpful pedagogical features including chapter introduction and summaries, and multiple choice review questions. It devotes an entire chapter to modern computer tools like MATLAB used in electromagnetics. It motivates student learning with more than 100 illustrative examples and over 600 figures. This book will be accompanied by an Instructor's Solutions Manual and PowerPoint slides of all the figures.show more

Review quote

"This book is EXCELLENT. It presents material with rigor, but without complexity. Also, the book never goes off track--almost every page and section is useful. I found it a wonderful book to teach from."--Raviraj Adve, University of Toronto"I can't quite put my finger on what makes this book so much better than all the others. I think it's that it's complete, has a lot of examples, is well-organized, has good problems (not too simple but not too hard) and explains concepts clearly and tersely."--Shira Broschat, Washington State Universityshow more
