An Introduction to Classical Electromagnetic Radiation (Softcover)
"This book provides a thorough description of classical electromagnetic radiation, starting from Maxwell's equations and moving on to show how fundamental concepts are applied in a wide variety of examples from areas such as classical optics, antenna analysis, electromagnetic scattering, and particle accelerators. Theoretical and experimental results are interwoven throughout to help give insight into the physical and historical foundations of the subject." — From the back cover

GOOD: This book is in good condition, showing moderate signs of use and wear. The pages are free of writing.
Continued from the back cover: “Following introductory chapters covering the basic theory of classical electromagnetism and the properties of plane waves, the concept of a plane-wave spectrum is developed and applied to the radiation from apertures. Radiation from a moving point charge is described in depth, as is that from a variety of thin-wire antennas. A key feature of the book is that pulsed and time-harmonic fields are presented on an equal footing.
“Mathematical and physical explanations are enhanced by a wealth of illustrations (over 300), and the book includes more than 140 problems. It will be of great interest to advanced undergraduate and graduate students of electrical engineering and physics, as well as to scientists and engineers working in applied electromagnetics.”
