Building on students' experience from their circuits course, Gayle Miner motivates the study of electromagnetics with an early discussion of transmission lines. The unique emphasis allows for waves to be introduced without vector complexities, and propagating electromagnetic waves can then be related to those results. While early coverage of static fields is reduced, all of the advanced functions typically introduced in statics are developed in discussion on waveguides. The result is a text, which emphasizes practical aspects of transmission lines and waveguides while providing a thorough understanding of the basic experiments of electromagnetic field theory and their mathematical results. This distinctive textbook offers an informal, conversational style, with many physical discussions and a minimum of 'it can be shown' introductions. Several other features include: over 200 worked examples including clearly worded expansions of what is being done; over 1,100 end-of-section and end-of-chapter exercises; numerous practical illustrations, presented with a conscientious attempt to draw examples from physically oriented configurations; and end-of-chapter summaries and objectives to emphasize principal more
