First published almost 60 years ago, and now in its Ninth Edition, Engineering Electromagnetics by Hayt/Buck is a classic text that has been updated for electromagnetics today. This widely respected book stresses fundamental concepts and problem solving, and discusses the material in an understandable and readable way. Numerous illustrations and analogies are provided to aid the reader in grasping the difficult concepts. In addition, independent learning is facilitated by the presence of many examples and problems.
Knowledge of electromagnetic field theory is more important than ever for the electrical engineer. Examples that demonstrate this include the continuing expansion of high- speed wireless and optical fiber communication. Additionally, the need continues for ever-smaller and denser microcircuitry, in which a command of field theory is essential for successful designs. The more traditional applications of electrical power generation 9 and distribution remain a focus.
