Electromagnetism sets a new standard in physics education. Throughout the book, the theory is illustrated with real-life applications in modern technology. It also includes detailed worked examples and step-by-step explanations to help readers develop their problem-solving strategies and skills and consolidate their understanding. In addition to a meticulous development of these traditional, analytical mathematical approaches, readers are also introduced to a range of techniques required for solving problems using computers.Electromagnetism provides an ideal preparation for students who plan more advanced studies in electrodynamics as well as those moving into industry or engineering.
