Publisher Synopsis

"... a unique title by two authors whose in-depth knowledge of this material and ability to present it to others are hardly matched. While the book provides distinguishing coverage and presentation of many topics, some discussions cannot be found elsewhere. I highly recommend this outstanding piece, bringing great value as both a textbook and reference text." -Branislav M. Notaros, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, USA "... useful for students, researchers, engineers, and teachers of electromagnetics. Today, in many universities, this discipline is taught by teachers who do not have much research experience in electromagnetism. That is why this textbook, written by world-known specialists and showing how electromagnetics courses should be built and taught, is very important. The authors have made clearer several aspects of electromagnetism which are poorly highlighted in earlier-published literature." -Guennadi Kouzaev, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim "Graduate students and learners of electromagnetics of any age and status: If you have not had a chance to attend graduate-level courses taught by great professors like Edward F. Kuester and David C. Chang, here comes opportunity knocking on your door. Electromagnetic Boundary Problems is borne out of course notes prepared, used, corrected, and perfected by the authors over the years at the University of Colorado, Boulder. This is a book of gems." -IEEE Antennas and Propagation, October 2016 Read more...
