Maxwell's equations and the discovery of electromagnetic waves changed the world. Can you imagine how our everyday life would be without telephone, radio, television, mobile phones and internet? It's thanks to Maxwell's equations that we understand what electromagnetic waves are and how they are generated, propagated and detected. These equations can even change our perception of nature when they are really understood, but their power and elegance is completely appreciated when they are expressed in differential form. Moreover, this form is extremely useful dealing with some issues, such as the propagation of electromagnetic waves.

This highly illustrated and accessible text will be an ideal introduction to the application of electromagnetics (EM) following an initial course in basic EM theory. The book covers the well established structure of elementary EM courses, beginning with Maxwell’s equations in integral form and developing the wave equation to show the essential properties of waves. In addition to providing a grounding in this traditional curriculum, the principal concern throughout is to make difficult concepts of electromagnetism more accessible. The adoption of time domain methods for this purpose is the book’s most important breakthrough, allowing the fundamentals of applied electromagnetics to be introduced with a clarity and simplicity not available through the conventional route. Another new aspect of this book is the integration of computational modelling methods with the standard theory of electromagnetic waves. The author presents a set of example programs written in the MATLAB language to support the ideas outlined in the text. The book is organized in a logical progression of ideas, starting with the general idea of wave motion and showing how the equations of electricity and magnetism lead to the existence of electromagnetic waves through the Maxwell’s equations. These ideas are then applied to simple accelerating charge models used in the engineering design of wire antennas. The concepts of resonance and antenna impedance are then treated from a time domain point of view. To reinforce the concepts of wave propagation, a chapter on computer modelling shows the rigorous procedures required to generate accurate numerical models of wave dynamics. The author extends these ideas to consider the properties of aperture antennas, showing how their important properties can be incorporated with the basic themes introduced earlier in the book. Finally, the important topic of wave scattering is introduced, once again from the point of view of time domain concepts.

Elementary Electromagnetic Theory Volume 3: Maxwell’s Equations and their Consequences is the third of three volumes that intend to cover electromagnetism and its potential theory. The third volume considers the implications of Maxwell's equations, such as electromagnetic radiation in simple cases, and its relation between Maxwell's equation and the Lorenz transformation. Included in this volume are chapters 11-14, which contain an in-depth discussion of the following topics: • Electromagnetic Waves • The Lorentz Invariance of Maxwell's Equation • Radiation • Motion of Charged Particles Intended to serve as an introduction to electromagnetism and potential theory, the book is for second, third, and fourth year undergraduates of physics and engineering, as they are included in their course of study. Do note that the authors assume that the readers are conversant with the basic ideas of vector analysis, including vector integral theorems.

Designed for upper division electromagnetism courses or as a reference for electrical engineers and scientists, this book introduces Maxwell’s equations and electromagnetic waves as soon as possible (i.e., in the first third of the book), and then goes on to discuss electrostatics, magnetostatics, induction, etc., in the light of those equations. The book also provides a thorough discussion of vector field theory which emphasizes the rotational invariance of the dot and cross products, together with div, grad, and curl, and thus gives a clear physical motivation for the use of those constructs to describe electric and magnetic fields. Unlike many competing books, Maxwell’s Equations & the Principles of Electromagnetism covers topics such as advanced potentials, retarded fields, forces on dielectric liquids, antenna theory, and Faraday rotations.

The theory of electromagnetic boundary waves is developed from Maxwell's equations, with emphasis on surface and leaky waves. First, a simple case of surface and leaky wave excitation is analyzed. The characteristics of inhomogeneous plane waves are then derived and related to the general prop erties of boundary waves along plane interfaces. The diverse types of boundary waves arising in waveguiding, refraction, diffraction, and propa gation are then displayed. Surface waves on guiding structures, and the radiation mechanism of both surface and leaky waves on finite-length structures, are explored in some detail. (Author).

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of electromagnetic waves. The author's approach is thoroughly modern, and unlike many others, this text offers a unified view of electromagnetic waves and their applications in telecommunications, radar, and photonics. The extensive coverage of Electromagnetic Waves begins with Maxwell's equations and takes students on the journey from the wave and Helmholtz equations through polarization, plane waves, and wave beams and packets, to antennas, transmission lines, and waveguides. Completing the treatment are chapters devoted to diffraction and an introduction to the theory of coherence. The author strikes an effective balance of the teach-through-concepts and teach-by-example approaches. The book is filled with exercises, current applications, and exercises that solidify students' understanding and bring relevance to the material. It forms an outstanding text for senior undergraduates and graduate-level students in electrical engineering and physics.

Requiring no advanced knowledge of wave propagation, An Introduction to Metamaterials and Waves in Composites focuses on theoretical aspects of metamaterials, periodic composites, and layered composites. The book gives novices a platform from which they can start exploring the subject in more detail. After introducing concepts related to elasticity, acoustics, and electrodynamics in media, the text presents plane wave solutions to the equations that describe elastic, acoustic, and electromagnetic waves. It examines the plane wave expansion of sources as well as scattering from curved interfaces, specifically spheres and cylinders. The author then covers electrodynamic, acoustic, and elastodynamic metamaterials. He also describes examples of transformations, aspects of acoustic cloaking, and applications of pentamode materials to acoustic cloaking. With a focus on periodic composites, the text uses the Bloch-Floquet theorem to find the effective behavior of composites in the quasistatic limit, presents the quasistatic equations of elastodynamic and electromagnetic waves, and investigates Brillouin zones and band gaps in periodic structures. The final chapter discusses wave propagation in smoothly varying layered media, anisotropic density of a periodic layered medium, and quasistatic homogenization of laminates. This book provides a launch pad for research into elastic and acoustic metamaterials. Many of the ideas presented have yet to be realized experimentally—the book encourages readers to explore these ideas and bring them to technological maturity.
