About this book

The classical electromagnetism described by the Maxwell equations constitutes a fundamental law in contemporary physics. Even with the advent of sophisticated new materials, the principles of classical electromagnetism are still active in various applied areas in today’s advanced communication techniques.

Physics of Classical Electromagnetism, by Minoru Fujimoto, is written with concise introductory arguments emphasizing the original field concept, with an aim at understanding objectives in modern information technology.

Following basic discussions of electromagnetism with a modernized approach, this book will provide readers with an overview of current problems in high-frequency physics. To further the reader’s understanding of the concepts and applications discussed, each illustration within the book shows the location of all active charges, and the author has provided many worked-out examples throughout the book.

Physics of Classical Electromagnetism is intended for students in physics and engineering but will serve as a useful reference to graduate students and researchers in fields including but not limited to classical electrodynamics, electromagnetism, optics and lasers.

Minoru Fujimoto is (retired) Professor of Physics at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. He is also the author of The Physics of Structural Phase Transitions (Springer, 2005).

Reviews

From the reviews:

"There are quite a large number of works that discuss electromagnetics from a mathematical/engineering perspective. Fujimoto (Univ. of Guelph) tries to present a slightly different approach, focusing on understanding the physics of electromagnetics … . Every chapter starts with a physical observation and continues with a general theorem/conclusion. … Addition of higher-quality illustrations and figures would improve the visual aspects of the book, and end-of-the-chapter problems would help students. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (B. Kordi, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (7), 2008)

"In Physics of Classical Electromagnetism, Minoru Fujimoto presents basic electromagnetism with an overview of current problems in high-frequency physics. … The mathematical details are provided in the appendix. A list of references and index are also included. The book is intended for students of physics and engineering at undergraduate levels, and should also serve as a reference for graduate students and researchers." (Reva Garg, Optics and Photonics News, December, 2007)

"‘Physics of classical electromagnetism’ by Minoru Fujimoto is a comprehensive and pedagogically well organized textbook for both the undergraduate and graduate students in physics and electrical engineering. It provides a modern approach in treating a broad variety of subjects in the field of classical electrodynamics … ." (Vladimir Cadež, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1163, 2009)
