Elements of Electromagnetics
Retail Price to Students:$154.95 (04)
DescriptionElements of Electromagnetics, Fifth Edition, uses a vectors-first approach to explain electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields, waves, and applications like transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas. The book also provides a balanced presentation of time-varying and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors.
Streamlined to facilitate student understanding, this edition features worked examples in every chapter that explain how to use the theory presented in the text to solve different kinds of problems. Numerical methods, including MATLAB and vector analysis, are also included to help students analyze situations that they are likely to encounter in industry practice.
New to this Edition:
* Lavish number of illustrations help students visualize phenomena
* Sadiku's trademark clear, concise explanations support teaching and help students understand concepts
* New and revised homework problems--particularly problems that focus on practical examples--help students connect what they learn in the classroom to real-world applications
* MATLAB exercises in each chapter help students build proficiency with the software and allow them to solve more complicated problems
* Companion website (www.oup.com/us/sadiku) with PowerPoint images and MATLAB problems from the text
Elements of Electromagnetics, Fifth Edition, is designed for introductory undergraduate courses in electromagnetics.
"In switching to Sadiku's book, the improvement on understanding how vectors work is substantial, approximately a 30-35% increase in scores. If you're forced into a one-semester 3-hour course, you're not going to get a better book than this."--Dennis McCaughey, George Mason University
"The new textbook is an excellent book. It provides clear presentations to the mathematical formulas, physics insight, and practical applications."--Fan Yang, The University of Mississippi
"It has a more refreshing approach to connecting theory to practical examples."--Kasra Daneshvar, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
"Sadiku's book seems more 'reader friendly' in terms of the layouts and printing qualities. . . . This book is doing a very good job on problems/solutions. The problems are stated clearly and there are some new questions available."--Yan Zhang, University of Oklahoma
"The scope as well as the number of HW problems is good. It shows balance between easy and challenging problems. . . . It is more detail oriented than Ulaby, represents substance, and it covers more material. The Matlab scripts have added value, and the problems appear to have an excellent mix of breath and depth."--Reinhold Ludwig, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
