Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics, 5/E

Fawwaz T. Ulaby

Prentice Hall


448 pp




For one- or two-semester courses in Electromagnetics. Widely acclaimed both in the U.S. and abroad, this authoritative text bridges the gap between circuits and new electromagnetics material. Ulaby begins coverage with transmission lines, leading students from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. Maintaining its student-friendly approach, this revision aims to clarify certain concepts and incorporates feedback from instructors and students.
