Product Description

From the Back Cover

Electrical Engineering/Electromagnetics Field Theory of Guided Waves Second Edition A volume in the IEEE/OUP Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory Donald G. Dudley, Series Editor Long considered the most comprehensive account of electromagnetic theory and analytical methods for solving waveguide and cavity problems, Field Theory of Guided Waves has been thoroughly revised and updated in this second edition. By introducing new subject areas and increasing coverage of others, the author has significantly enhanced the usefulness of this new edition. The method of presentation is clear and informative and new examples and problems greatly aid comprehension. This second edition also includes an important chapter on scalar and dyadic Green’s functions, which is essentially all new, as well as new material on layered media, microstrip lines, dielectric resonators, integral equations, and numerical solutions to reflect current geometrical configurations. About the series Formerly the IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Waves, this new joint series between IEEE Press and Oxford University Press offers even better coverage of the field, with new titles as well as reprintings and revisions of recognized classics that maintain long–term archival significance in electromagnetic waves and applications. Designed specifically for graduate students, practicing engineers, and researchers, this series provides affordable volumes that explore electromagnetic waves and applications beyond the undergraduate level.

About the Author

About the author Robert E. Collin received the B.Sc. degree in engineering physics from the University of Saskatchewan in 1951. He attended Imperial College in England for graduate work and obtained the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of London in 1954. From 1954 to 1958 he was a Scientific Officer at the Canadian Armament Research and Development Establishment, where he worked on missile guidance antennas, radomes, and radar systems evaluation. He joined the Electrical Engineering Department at Case Institute of Technology (now Case Western Reserve University), Cleveland, Ohio, in 1958. During his tenure there he has served as Chairman of the Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics Department for five years and also as Interim Dean of Engineering for two years. He is the author/co–author of more than 100 technical papers and several books, including Foundations for Microwave Engineering, Antennas and Radiowave Propagation, a co–author with R. Plonsey of Principles and Applications of Electromagnetic Fields, and a co–editor with F. Zucker and contributing author of Antenna Theory, Parts I and II. Professor Collin is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, and the USA Commission B of URSI. He is currently a member of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.

The "Divina Commedia" of Applied Electromagnetism! 10 Jun. 2000
By luca rinaldi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Simply staten this is one of the finest books ever written in applied electromagnetics.There is a deligthful analytical treatment of everything related to wave-propagation in waveguides.But Mr Collin is not a dry-hearted teacher ,he is able to explain very complicated mathematical instruments with a very clear and fresh approach.Expecially good is the Green Function's treatment which is the best i ever saw in any book.Reading this book you will be able to progress from the intermediate to the very advanced level in Applied Electromagnetism.While it is true that nowadays there is a lot of software around that analyses almost every conceivable structure,it is also true that a analytical study gives you the possibility to sort the important from the accessory ,a thing no computer system is still able to do.I reccomend this book to anyone interested in advanced Electromagnetism.Only bad point is the price ,which is too much high expecially with the weak Euro we have now .On the whole a "top" book:5 stars!

Thank you Robert 26 May 2007

Format: Hardcover
A good reference for the student, a good textbook for the professor who teaches a course on either the basics or the advanced principles, a good help for the design engineer who wishes to refresh his memory on the theory.

Complete & extensive work on rf technology 12 Mar. 2003
By Sven Reiche - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After you read this book you will think that Jackson's 'Classical Electrodynamic' is brief and easy. I was required to learn for my job the physics of waveguides.
I purchased this book because it was recommended by Jackson. In fact Jacksons chapter on waveguide is a summery of what you can find it here.
Although very difficullt to read you can find all information about guided waves you need. I was never required to go beyond this book.

A classic book! 18 July 2013
By engineer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Makes an otherwise complex subject seem simple by the way it is presented.I found it to be an exceptionally well written text, and would encourage anyone who is interested in the subject to buy it. A great book!
