Intended for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in electrical engineering and physics, this text presents a science-oriented, mathematically complete, and unified approach to the study of field theory and electromagnetics. To facilitate a detailed development of the theoretical material, the authors reject the traditional historical "case study" approach in favor of the theory's logical development, followed by examples that illuminate facets of the theory.
The book may be divided into three parts: field analysis, basic electromagnetic theory, and applications. Basic laws and concepts — along with their implications — are thoroughly discussed before detailed mathematical analysis is undertaken. In addition to rigorous treatments of all relevant derivations and proofs, appropriate emphasis is placed upon the physical significance of mathematical operations.
