  • The correspondence of the electric phenomena and the magnetic phenomena (E-B) analogy is clearly shown
  • Provides an introduction to superconductivity at the undergraduate student level
  • Standardizes the teaching of electromagnetism to undergraduate students and also serves as a textbook for teachers
  • Contains many informative columns of differences between ideal and reality as well as exercises with thoroughly detailed answers with formulas.
The author introduces the concept that superconductivity can establish a perfect formalism of electricity and magnetism. The correspondence of conductors that exhibit perfect electrostatic shielding (E=0) in the static condition and superconductors that show perfect diamagnetism (B=0) is given to help readers understand the relationship between electricity and magnetism.

Another helpful aspect with the introduction of the superconductivity feature perfect diamagnetism is that the correspondence in the development of the expression of magnetic energy and electric energy is clearly shown.

Additionally, the basic mathematical operation and proofs are shown in an appendix, and there is full use of examples and exercises in each chapter with thorough answers.
