BarnettElectromagnetism, Second Edition is suitable for a first course inelectromagnetism, whilst also covering many topics frequentlyencountered in later courses. The material has been carefullyarranged and allows for flexi-bility in its use for courses ofdifferent length and structure. A knowledge of calculus and anelementary knowledge of vectors is assumed, but the mathematicalproperties of the differential vector operators are described insufficient detail for an introductory course, and their physicalsignificance in the context of electromagnetism is emphasised. Inthis Second Edition the authors give a fuller treatment of circuitanalysis and include a discussion of the dispersion ofelectromagnetic waves. Electromagnetism, Second Edition features:
* The application of the laws of electromagnetism to practicalproblems such as the behaviour of antennas, transmission lines andtransformers.
* Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help studentunderstanding, with hints and solutions to the problems given atthe end of the book.
* Optional "starred" sections containing more specialised andadvanced material for the more ambitious reader.
* An Appendix with a thorough discussion of electromagneticstandards and units.
Recommended by many institutions. Electromagnetism. SecondEdition has also been adopted by the Open University as the coursebook for its third level course on electromagnetism.
