Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics, 8th edition

  • Fawwaz T. Ulaby
  • Umberto Ravaioli


Bridging the gap between circuits and electromagnetics.

Widely acclaimed both in the U.S. and abroad, this authoritative text bridges the gap between circuits and electromagnetics material. Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics begins coverage with transmission lines, leading students from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. The 8th Edition builds on the core content and style of previous editions, retaining the student-friendly approach and hands-on simulation modules that help students develop a deeper understanding of electromagnetic concepts and applications. Enhanced graphs and illustrations and an expanded scope of topics in the Technology Briefs, establish additional bridges between electromagnetic fundamentals and their countless engineering and scientific applications.
