Electromagnetic Processes in Dispersive Media
is an advanced
electromagnetism textbook which works its way from statics through to
extensive coverage of different kinds of emission processes. The nicest
thing about the book is that it employs a uniform and consistent
mathematical approach, using tensors and working in the Fourier domain
wherever the equations and calculations can be simplified that way.
Also, the authors are always careful to make the assumptions being used
explicit, something many electromagnetism textbooks fail to do. The
text is well organised and clearly presented; there are plentiful line
drawings and each chapter has a set of exercises to entertain the reader
— all round a very nice textbook.
Prerequisites: the electromagnetism component of a physics degree and
basic mathematical competence.
