Bridging the gap between electric circuits and electronmagnetics, Ulabys text leads students from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. Earlier and heavier emphasis on dynamics permits coverage of practical applications in communication systems, radar, optics and solid state computers. A new, interactive CD-ROM allows students to gain physical intuition about electromagnetics.

Features

NEW—Robust interactive CD-ROM—CD will contain three types of modules: 1. Interactive Modules: Each of these poses a question and tries to help the student arrive at the correct answer by offering HELP if the answer is incorrect, and by eventually explaining the solution. The CD contains about seventy of these. 2. Demos: Each of these tries to graphically or through a video, demonstrate how something works or the physics underlying a given behavior. In each case, a problem is posed and the student is asked if he/she wants to view a graphical solution only or both a graphical and an accompanying analytical solution. The CD contains about seventy of these. 3. Problems with complete solutions that will serve as a complete study guide for students. The CD contains approximately one-hundred of these.
Assists students in gaining physical intuition about electromagnetics.
Logical organization—Begins coverage with transmission lines.
Presents students with a natural bridge between familiar circuits material and new electromagnetics material.
More emphasis on dynamics than statics.
Enables students and instructors to cover applications of time-varying fields in the first semester.
Unique coverage of optical fibers and imaging (Ch. 8).
Gives students valuable material on optical fibers in wideband communication and optical imaging by mirrors and lenses.
Student-friendly approach.
Explains and clarifies the physics by using math.
Thorough verification of material.
Ensures students and instructors that all information, problems, and solutions are accurate.
