Lucid and coherent
on 27 February 2017
The emphasis of this book is to communicate the purpose and applications of Maxwell's equations in a lucid and coherent way. Complex ideas are put in straightforward terms, which, combined with the informal and direct writing style, makes this book concise and enjoyable to use.
The format is simple: each of Maxwell's equations is summarised, its components explained, and its applications demonstrated. Each section stands alone, so the reader can pick and choose which parts to read based on his or her existing knowledge; this also makes the book a very capable reference.
Equipped with this book, and a familiarity of vector calculus (the book provides excellent refreshers on relevant vector calculus topics), the dedicated reader should attain a robust and thorough understanding of Maxwell's equations.
