This book is a self contained course in electromagnetic theory suitable for senior physics and electrical engineering students as well as graduate students whose past has not prepared them well for books such as Jackson or Landau and Lifschitz. The text is liberally sprinkled with worked examples illustrating the application of the theory to various physical problems. This new edition features improved accuracy and readability, added and further clarified examples, plus additional sections on Schwarz-Christoffel mappings. Making the book more self sufficient, an appendix on orthogonal function expansions and the derivation of Bessel functions and Legendre polynomials as well as derivation of their generating functions are each included. The number of exercises has also been increased by 45 over the previous edition.This book stresses the unity of electromagnetic theory with electric and magnetic fields developed in parallel. SI units are used throughout and considerable use is made of tensor notation and the Levi-Cevita symbol. To more closely display the parallelism, extensive use is made of the scalar magnetic potential particularly in dealing with the Laplace and Poisson equation. 85 worked problems illustrate the theory. Conformal mappings are dealt with in some detail. Relevant mathematical material is provided in appendices.For information regarding Solutions Manual, please contact the author Jack Vanderlinde at: or see "Related Links - Solution Manual".

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"Electromagnetic theory is a core subject for students of physics and is often taught at various levels . . Vanderlinde's book is aimed in between - for the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course . . provides appendixes to cover the tensor framework and special functions that are needed. . A large number of worked examples provides students with a toehold in dealing with problems. This book would serve as a solid addition to the physics collection of an undergraduate or graduate library. Summing Up: Highly recommended." (J. McCleary, CHOICE, Vol. 43 (1), September, 2005)"This textbook is written for senior-level college/university students of physics and electrical engineering. It is based on the author's classroom lecture notes. . The developments in the text are supported by a collection of very well-drawn figures. Most chapters include some worked-out examples to illustrate new concepts . ." (Philip Huddleston, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 k)
