Electromagnetic Field Theory

Text Books:- Field and Wave Electromagnetic by David K Cheng (2nd Edition)

Reference Books:-

1. Engineering Electromagnetics by William H Hayt (2nd Edition)

2. Electronic Communication Systems by George Kennedy (2nd Edition)

3. Electromagnetic Waves and Radiating Systems by Balma.

Course Description:-

This is the first course in Electromagnetics (EM), which covers the fundamentals of EM fields.
The course has been designed to provide students with a secure and sufficient background for
understanding and analyzing electromagnetic phenomena, as well as prepare them for more advanced
subjects in EM theory. The course has been divided into four parts. In the first part, after developing an EM
model, vector calculus has been reviewed. The second part deals with the static electric fields covering
Coulomb’s law, Gauss’s law, and their application; Poisson’s and Laplaces’s equations; Ohm’s law,
Kirchoff’s voltage and current laws. Part three is concerned with the steady magnetic field (magnostatics),
covering Biot-Savart law and applications; magnetic dipole; magnetic materials; magnetic forces and
torques. Part four covers the time-varying fields including Faraday’s law of EM induction; Maxwell’s
equations; EM boundary conditions; wave equations; time harmonic fields etc. The application of the
Maxwell’s equations to wave propagation, transmission lines, wave-guides and antennas shall be covered in
the next course on Electromagnetics.
