Table of Contents
Virtually every four-year electrical and computer engineering program requires a course in electromagnetic fields and waves encompassing Maxwell's equations. Understanding and appreciating the laws of Nature that govern the speed of even the smallest computer chip or largest power line is fundamental for every electrical and computer engineer. Fundamentals of Electromagnetics with MATLAB, 2nd Edition is much more than a mere textbook. The book itself offers a structural framework of principles, key equations, and problems. With that crucial supporting structure, each instructor, student or reader can turn to the supplemental files provided with this book or available online to customize and decorate each topic room.
Table of Contents
This second edition is the result of extensive user feedback and includes a 100% standalone Transmission Line chapter for flexible course placement; expanded problem sets matched to text sections and checked for clarity; and separate chapters for Electrostatics and Magnetostatics. The attractive 2-color design, tight page design and paperback version make this the most affordable textbook of its type.
Teaching with MATLAB
1. Students can learn and apply this subject's difficult principles much more easily, and possibly even enjoyably, using MATLAB. Here's how using MATLAB alongside this textbook makes all the difference.
2. Examples - Worked-out examples run throughout the text to show how a proof can be derived or a problem solved in steps.
3. Figures - Numerous figures within the text were generated using MATLAB. Students can obtain and manipulate the program code with its corresponding M-file and can also view the figure in full color from their CD.
4. Problems - Each chapter contains numerous problems of varying complexity. Icons in the text show that certain problems can be solved using MATLAB.
5. Animations - Authors, instructors, and even students have contributed a number of animations showing principles at work. The MATLAB files become a starting point for manipulating the variables to produce different results.
6. Tutorials - Students come with widely varying exposures to MATLAB. A self-paced tutorial is included on the student CD which introduces MATLAB operations and tools, starting with the basics and bringing the student forward to perform relatively complex operations, problem solving, and visualizations.
1. Whether you offer one course or two, this second edition provides greatly enhanced flexibility to the instructor with optional new topics and extended discussion of core topics provided in PDF files on the student CD.
2. Complete solutions to all problems in Word, or .m files to the MATLAB problems.
3. A core base of applications are included on the student CD for instructors to assign as reading. Instructors who wish to submit their own applications can do so and they will be made available as web downloads and added to the CD in our periodic updates.
4. PowerPoint slides of all figures in the text, by chapter.
5. Three sets of exams with solutions (first test, second test, final exam)
6. Animations in MATLAB, MPG files, and PowerPoint.
Instructors receive a complimentary copy of Syed Nasar's book 2008+ Solved Problems in Electromagnetics (with confirmed order of 10 or more copies - others by special request)
"This second edition conforms pretty much to what I think a 'book' must be, if it is to be used as a text. The authors have surrounded the book with electronic software that points squarely in the direction of the book-of-the-future...Lonngren's text is a big step along the wat to the CORRECT use of electronic multimedia." - Donald G. Dudley, University of Arizona, Founding Editor of the IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory
"I am very impressed with this book...The large amount of supplementary material available for students and instructors is a big advantage, and the publisher seems to be available around the clock with an open ear for requests and an appetite for suggestions and submissions." - Jonathan Bagby, Associate Professor, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Florida Atlantic University
"What I like most about this textbook is its logical and straightforward presentation of the fundamentals, with relevant and helpful MATLAB examples and website materials. We were using the Sadiku book but have switched to Lonngren et al." - Gregory D. Buckner, Associate Professor, Dept. of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NC State University
