"The ultimate resource for electromagnetics." "Electromagnetics," "First Edition," the new text by author and professor Branisalv M. Notaros, equips readers with the theory and skills needed to gain a comprehensive understanding of EM fundamentals. While other texts sacrifice content for brevity, this text ensures readers grasp the fundamentals through a clear and deliberate presentation of the material, unique pedagogy, and outstanding problems and examples that are tied to the concepts covered in each chapter. It includes 14 chapters on electrostatic fields, steady electric currents, magnetostatic fields, slowly time-varying (low-frequency) electromagnetic fields, rapidly time-varying (high-frequency) electromagnetic fields, uniform plane electromagnetic waves, transmission lines, waveguides and cavity resonators, and antennas and wireless communication systems. For electrical and computing engineers.

Branislav M. Notaros is Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Colorado State University, where he conducts research in computational electromagnetics, antennas, and microwaves. He received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, where he then served as Assistant Professor. He also was Assistant and Associate Professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He has published three workbooks and 80 papers. Prof. Notoros was the recipient of the 2005 IEEE MTT-S Microwave Prize, 1999 IEE Marconi Premium, 1999 URSI Young Scientist Award, 2005 UMass Dartmouth Scholar of the Year Award, 2004 UMD COE Dean's Recognition Award, and 2009 CSU ECE Excellence in Teaching Award.
