A volume in the IEEE/OUP Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory Donald D. Dudley, Series Editor
"The quality of the material and the clarity of exposition make this an important reference book for research workers and lecturers."Nature
Modern methods of tackling problems associated with electromagnetic waves involve a judicious mixture of analysis and computation. The analysis occurs in the mathematical formulation and in establishing that it has the requisite properties. Conversion to a form suitable for the computer entails numerical analysis, whose justification may also rest on a considerable body of analysis. Therefore, the aim of this volume is to develop a suitable framework of theory and numerical analysis with applications to various aspects of the propagation of electromagnetic waves. The explanation is couched in as comprehensible a language as possible and it assumes a starting–point as early as is commensurate with the size of the text. Numerous exercises have been inserted at convenient points and some of these are open–ended so that any instructor has plenty of freedom in determining the mode of treatment. This new edition considers the analytical progress which has been made recently, and the wider availability of powerful computers. The conjugate gradient method and CGFFT are given extensive treatment. The coverage of finite methods has been expanded and conforming finite elements particularly appropriate to electromagnetic applications are described. The discussion of integral equations has been completely revised and new topics have been added, including Sobolev spaces, vector optimization, absorbing boundary conditions, and surface radiation conditions.
