Electromagnetic Waves is a book that covers the syllabus of a number of Undergraduate courses on Electromagnetic Waves. The concepts in this book are explained, in terms of modern-day applications, without ignoring its underlying Mathematics. Through the course of this book, the readers are provided with insight into the use of Electro-Magnets for modern-day communications such as Wireless, and Satellite.
In total, there are 11 chapters in this book, covering different aspects of Electromagnetic Waves. Some of the chapters in Electromagnetic Waves include Maxwell's Equations, Uniform Plane Wave, Propagation of Radio Waves, Applications of EM Waves, Dielectric Waveguide, Plane Waves at Media Interface. There are also six appendices at the end of this book, covering Fourier Transformers, Some Useful Material Constants, Coordinate Systems, Units and Symbols, Vector Calculus, and Bessel Functions.
In this book, the readers are provided with 125 solved problems, which are excellent for understanding the methodology for solving problems. Additionally, there are 211 exercise problems, and 330 review questions present in this book. Electromagnetic Waves is a part of the syllabus for Electronics, and Electrical Engineering.
