This book is a sequel to Electromagnetism: Theory (Volume I). It has been updated to cover some additional aspects of theory and nearly all modern applications. The semi-historical approach is unchanged, but further historical comments have been introduced at various places in the book to give a better insight into the development of the subject as well as to make the study more interesting and palatable to the students.
• Emphasis on practical aspects of wave guidance and radiation
• Sections on analysis of cylindrical dielectric waveguide (e.g. of optical fibres) in Chapters 18 and 22
• Tensor formulation of Maxwell’s Stresses
• Extension of Principle of Duality to time varying field problems as well as to non electrical systems
• Extrapolation of the method of images from partially embedded conduction current elements to discontinuous current elements with displacement currents in antennae problems
• Explanation of the physical basis of the mechanism of electromagnetic radiation
• Analysis of wave polarization including complete and partial polarization
• Effects of finite geometrical dimensions of the conducting media on the skin-effect phenomenon
• Types of apertures in receiving antennae
The book is designed to serve as a core text for students of electrical engineering. Besides, it will be useful to postgraduate physics students as well as research engineers and design and development engineers in industries.
