Garg (electronics and electrical communication engineering, Indian Institute of Technology) helps electronic engineers master the principles and methods underlying computational tools and commercial software in electromagnetic, with the goal of achieving optimal microwave system performance. He explains such key concepts as the method of moments, finite difference time domain, the finite element method, and Green's functions, with an emphasis on the analysis of the scalar wave equation in Cartesian coordinates. He starts with the basic principles of electromagnetic theory, then moves to analytical methods and orthogonal functions, Green's functions, computer integration and conformal mapping, Fourier transform methods, computational methods, method of finite differences, finite difference time domain analysis, and variational methods. With full sets of multiple choice questions and examples, as well as more than 1300 equations, this is a good self-study guide as well as a classroom text.
