Electromagnetic Fundamentals

  • George W. Hanson
  • Alexander B. Yakovlev


The coverage of electromagnetics in this chapter is somewhat brief, especially the physical aspects of the theory, since it is assumed that the reader is familiar with basic field theory at an undergraduate or beginning graduate level. For a more extensive introduction to electromagnetic theory, the references at the end of this chapter may be consulted.
