Electrical Engineering/Electromagnetics Field Computation by Moment Methods A volume in the IEEE/OUP Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory Donald G. Dudley, Series Editor An IEEE reprinting of this classic 1968 edition, Field Computation by Moment Methods is the first book to explore the computation of electromagnetic fields by the method of moments the most popular method to date for the numerical solution of electromagnetic field problems. It presents a unified approach to moment methods by employing the concepts of linear spaces and functional analysis. Written especially for those who have a minimal amount of experience in electromagnetic theory, theoretical and mathematical concepts are illustrated by examples that prepare readers with the skills they need to apply the method of moments to new, engineering–related problems. Key topics include:

- Electrostatic fields
- Two–dimensional electromagnetic fields
- Wire antennas and scatterers
- Multiport systems
- Transmission lines and waveguides
- Resonators
- Antenna systems
Also in the series Electromagnetics History, Theory, and Applications by Robert S. Elliott, UCLA A useful reference for engineers and physicists, the IEEE reprinting of this classic text provides a deep, fundamental understanding of electromagnetics. Each chapter begins with a pertinent historical overview that shows how special relativity can be used to develop a complete electromagnetic theory from Coulomb’s Law, with the needed relativity theory developed in an early chapter. Key features include:

- The development and use of special relativity to establish a complete electromagnetic theory based on Coulomb’s Law as the sole experimental postulate
- Historical introductions to each chapter
- Extensive treatment of electrical properties of materials in the final three chapters
1993 Hardcover 656 pp IEEE Order No. PC3723 ISBN 0–7803–1024–1 About the series Formerly the IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Waves, this new joint series between IEEE Press and Oxford University Press offers even better coverage of the field with new titles as well as reprintings and revisions of recognized classics that maintain long–term archival significance in electromagnetic waves and applications. Designed specifically for graduate students, practicing engineers, and researchers, this series provides affordable volumes that explore electromagnetic waves and applications beyond the undergraduate level.
