View all copies of this ISBN edition:
This book is based on lectures on classical electromagnetism given at Manchester University. The level of difficulty is suitable for honours physics students at a British University or physics major at an American University. A-level or high school physics and calculus are assumed, and the reader is expected to have some elementary knowledge of vectors. Unitl one is used to them, vectors are difficult, and the authors have accordingly treated them rather cautiously to begin with. Brief descriptions of the properties of the differential vector operators are given at their first appearance. These descriptions are not intended to be a substitute for a proper mathematical text, but to remind the reader what div, grad and curl are all about, and to set them in the context of electromagnetism. The distinction between macroscopic and microscopic electric and magnetic fields is fully discussed at an early stage in the book.

Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett Electromagnetism, Second Edition is suitable for a first course in electromagnetism, whilst also covering many topics frequently encountered in later courses. The material has been carefully arranged and allows for flexi–bility in its use for courses of different length and structure. A knowledge of calculus and an elementary knowledge of vectors is assumed, but the mathematical properties of the differential vector operators are described in sufficient detail for an introductory course, and their physical significance in the context of electromagnetism is emphasised. In this Second Edition the authors give a fuller treatment of circuit analysis and include a discussion of the dispersion of electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetism, Second Edition features:
  • The application of the laws of electromagnetism to practical problems such as the behaviour of antennas, transmission lines and transformers.
  • Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help student understanding, with hints and solutions to the problems given at the end of the book.
  • Optional "starred" sections containing more specialised and advanced material for the more ambitious reader.
  • An Appendix with a thorough discussion of electromagnetic standards and units.
Recommended by many institutions. Electromagnetism. Second Edition has also been adopted by the Open University as the course book for its third level course on electromagnetism.
