This is a fully revised and updated edition of a widely used introductory textbook on electromagnetism. It covers all the fundamental aspects of this important topic in electrical engineering. The approach is eminently practical and requires little mathematics other than elementary differentiation, integration, and trigonometry. It will continue to appeal to students studying this conceptually challenging but fundamental subject. New sections on electromechanics (conversion of electric and magnetic energy in mechanical energy and vice versa) and high-frequency phenomena (transmission lines, waveguides, optical fibres, and radio propagation) enhance the usefulness of the book.

A fully revised and updated edition of one of the most widely used textbooks on electromagnetism covering all fundamental aspects of this important topic. Written as a basic introductory text for beginning electrical engineering students, this book adopts an elementary and practical approach requiring little knowledge of mathematics beyond simple differentiation and integration. This new edition is enhanced with restyled diagrams, a wide selection of exercises (numerical answers supplied) and an important new section on skin effect in conductors. Essential reading for anyone needing a sound basic knowledge of electromagnetism.About the Author:
Percy Hammond is Honorary Research Professor at Southampton, and is a very distinguished figure in the circles of electromagnetic scholarship. This book is very well known and loved in its first three editions. he is also a serious contributor to computational methods with the "Tubes and Slices" method given prominence in Engineering Electromagnetism (with Sykulski) and to fundamental thinking about the geometry of fields in The Geometry of Electromagnetic Fields (with Baldomir). Hammond is a series editor for Monographs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Asked to have Honorary Research Professor taken off of publicity material for this book as he feels it strikes the wrong note!
