Product Description
This textbook of electromagnetic theory, written for an advanced undergraduate course, is characterized by its pedagogical excellence and by an abundance of novel material, problems, and illustrative examples based on the author's original research and on his contributions to Maxwell's theory of electric and magnetic phenomena. Among the many unique and novel features of the book are: author's solutions of Maxwell's equations (now referred to in the scientific literature as the "Jefimenko's equations"), a comprehensive treatment of vector-analytical operations involving retarded field integrals, a detailed discussion of electric fields outside current-carrying conductors, spectacular line-of-force photographs of electric fields inside and outside current-carrying media, calculations of electric and magnetic fields from charge and current inhomogeneities, a remarkably simple derivation of Maxwell's stress integrals, the "thin shell" atomic model, Minkowski's equations for moving media, electromagnetic effects affecting space crafts moving through interplanetary or interstellar magnetic fields, a detailed analysis of Poynting's energy flux in and out a cylindrical conduit, the method of "equivalent currents," etc., etc. The presentation is clear, logical, thorough and thought-provoking. Employing the time-independent Maxwell's equations as the starting point, the theory is developed from the beginning on the basis of the Faraday-Maxwell concept of electric and magnetic fields. A generalization to the time-dependent Maxwell's equations is effortless and lucid. Vector analysis is introduced early in a self-contained chapter and is then used throughout the text as a standard mathematical tool. The exposition is purposeful and efficient. Careful distinction is made between the definitions, laws and consequences. The range of validity and the limitations of applicability of all the electric and magnetic laws are clearly stated. The book is written for the student and is designed toencourage a creative application of electromagnetic theory. For this purpose numerouscarefully selected illustrative examples have been incorporated in the text and an excellent collection of problems has been supplied with each chapter. The format of the book is designed for easy readability. The book is set in the famous British Baskerville typeface, which is one of the most readable typefaces in existence. The format is further enhanced by numerous meticulously executed air-brush drawings. The book is printed on acid-free Fortune Matte paper and is bound in high grade "artificial leather" cloth. The book contains 598 pages of main text in 16 chapters, 544 problems, 243 illustrative examples, 249 figures, 12 plates of lines-of-force photographs and 10 tables. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great book!
It's a great book, well documented with pointers to many other resources!
While it presents a great overview of the current state of bio-magnetics and PEMF technologies, I think the best part is that it gives the reader enough informatin to go forward and research any particular topic of interest (patents in this field, research papers, refference books and so).
Highly recommend it!

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but painfully redundant
I truly love reading almost anything about alternative health, and I have some fairly long time experience with magnet therapy, however, I found this book almost painful to get through. From the beginning the author is on the defensive, though that is not so difficult to understand considering the prevailing attitude regarding anything not mainstream, particularly in 1974 when the book was written. Which also brings up the point that the book is very much dated in spite of 13 printings.
There are some very good points addressed by the authors, and am grateful for the effort, however, it is not a book that is likely to find residence in my library. The most prevalent flaw is its redundancy. It is almost painful to read. Consider the following sentence from page 33: "For the S pole energies each egg in a group of eight was placed in front of the S pole of a 2500 gauss magnet, using a separate magnet for each egg and placing it in front against the S pole." There are much greater redundancies than this, but they usually flow throughout paragraphs and pages. This was a concise example.
I could go on but let me sum things up by saying that while I truly appreciate the research presented here, I find the work to be fatally flawed. I am not sorry to have read it, but I certainly hope this is not the best of what is available on the subject.
There is about 25 to 30 pages of pretty decent information that has been intentionally "fluffed out" to 127 pages in order to make a book. The history of magnetic therapy presented is inadequate. Good research would reveal 127 pages on this alone. The authors could have presented much more "balanced" book in nearly every way. Perhaps they wore magnetic blinders.

1-0 out of 5 stars A look back in the history of misinterpretation
This is really not the best book to understand magnetism. It's a picture of a physical mismath. One star and a rewiew not worth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely one of the most important books ever written! Read it - you'll see.
First of all I have to address the review written by Skippy. To say that this book could be compressed to a few pages, and that it's too expensive given the amount of information in it is absurd.

Albert Roy Davis was the first scientist in the world to discover, in 1936, that magnetism consists of two separate and distinct energies with opposite effects. Davis and Rawls discovered that magnetism can be used to extend the lifespan of animals/humans, to increase the intelligence of animals/humans, to increase psychic abilities, to eliminate cancer and many other diseases, to increase the growth of plants, and the list goes on. The specifics on how to increase psychic abilities (North pole magnetism directed at the pineal gland) can be found in their book "The Rainbow in Your Hands". They also wrote about it in a great article titled "The Scope of Biomagnetism", which is now on the Teslatech website. I highly recommend reading it. There is a very good radio interview with Walter Rawls from June 5, 2008 on the blogtalkradio website as well. Just type in "Dr. Walter C. Rawls, Jr." into the search box to find the show.

The knowledge you can acquire from the discoveries of Davis and Rawls is priceless. For example, excessive exposure to South pole magnetism is hazardous to your health, it REDUCES your mental abilities, makes you shorttempered, aggressive, uncaring... and the vast majority of telephones and headphones expose the user to South pole magnetic fields! Is this accidental or are telephones and headphones deliberately designed in this manner? You can even be exposed to South pole magnetic fields from the bedsprings in your mattress. I've measured North and South pole magnetic fields coming from bedsprings with my magnetometer. You can usually use a compass too. If the 'N' on the compass is pointing toward YOU while you're facing North, it is the NORTH POLE of the compass magnet (it points toward the SOUTH when you're facing NORTH). If the 'N' on the compass points NORTH when you are facing North, it is actually the SOUTH POLE of the compass magnet. Remember, opposite polarities attract each other. This method of defining the poles is the opposite of what orthodox science states to this day (they state that the Magnetic South Pole of the Earth is actually in the Northern Hemisphere), but as Davis and Rawls prove, orthodox science is wrong.

One of the many patents that Davis and Rawls have obtained (entitled 'Magnetic Field Expansion and Compression Method') makes it possible to make stronger metals, plastics, concrete and many other materials. Their process was successfully tested at Lockheed Martin decades ago, back when it was Lockheed-Georgia. Another discovery they made is that it appears as if NEW ELEMENTS can be produced that were never before thought possible (this info isn't in the book though), all by the controlled use of magnetic fields! Scientists who have examined their discovery haven't been able to determine if these elements are changed or if entirely new elements are produced.

Within a few years after the publication of this book thousands of scientists and doctors duplicated some of the experiments, as Davis and Rawls explained in their fourth book, "The Magnetic Blueprint of Life". In this book (The Magnetic Blueprint of Life) they also emphasize the importance of "spin" in the universe (which they wrote about in "Magnetism and Its Effects..." before mainstream science "discovered it"), and make a very convincing argument that the universe is not expanding, it's expanding AND contracting SIMULTANEOUSLY. For some reason it's difficult to locate this book on Amazon, but if you click on the link to "The Magnetic Effect", their second book, and then click on the 'Paperback, June 1993' format (top of page), or the 'Unknown Binding' format, you'll be directed to "The Magnetic Blueprint of Life".

I have a video from the Albert Roy Davis Laboratory that contains photos of scientists that visited their lab in the 1970's, verifications of their discoveries, including measurements of the two separate magnetic energies surrounding Earth by NASA, which they later claimed was a mistake (published in the November, 1968 issue of Scientific American, page 91), and letters from professors expressing great interest in their work from Yale University, Columbia University, and others. The video also includes photos of a process of "Kirlian Photography" that, contrary to popular belief, was developed by Albert Roy Davis in the 1930's, BEFORE KIRLIAN! Many scientists visited their lab, including scientists from Westinghouse, Toyota, the Florida Department of Agriculture, and even Wernher Von Braun paid a visit, to name just a few.

There are so many doctors and scientists that claim to have made discoveries that were really made by Davis and Rawls. Some people are just shameless. Once you've read the Davis/Rawls books you can spot those authors who use some of their discoveries, yet often neglect to so much as mention their names, with relative ease. Even when they are credited their work is usually minimized so as not to appear to overshadow the work of the author, researcher, doctor or scientist in question, which it certainly does. Those of you who have read about the history of science know that this is the rule rather than the exception.

Davis' discovery of the two separate and distinct energies of magnetism is the FOUNDATION of the "New Physics" and the "Unified Field", but very few people in that area of research have given him the credit he deserves. On the contrary, they are busy jockeying for position in an attempt to get their own names stamped into history.

If you're looking for a book that explains in detail how to use a biomagnet for various magnet therapy applications, the second book by Davis and Rawls, "The Magnetic Effect", is the book you're looking for. It is still the best one. In recent years Rawls has said that the South pole energy should not be used unless you are well trained in this science, due to the risks it poses. The books by Davis and Rawls are by far the most informative books on this subject.

The writer/radio host Tom Valentine once wrote, "In my opinion, the late Albert Roy Davis will one day be referred to as the 'Nikola Tesla' of biomagnetism." I couldn't agree more. If there is a scientist who can truly be compared to Tesla, it is Albert Roy Davis. The discoveries that he and Rawls have made are that revolutionary!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating!
This work is a fascinating look into the effects of magnetism and how it can cause change in living things.

The book was an easy read with clear and concise examples of the theories that it asserts. The work by the scientists was done with care and showed a wide range of ways that this mysterious force can heal us.

After doing research and experimentation on designing and constructing instruments which exploit the force of magnetism on living tissue. I concur with the body of work as presented here.

It is an absolute MUST READ for ANYONE who has either a budding interest in the subject or a seasoned researcher who needs supplementation on the subject ... Read more

Product Description
In this book, originally published in 1983, a synthesis of old and new notions straddling the disciplines of physics and chemistry is described; and this provides a means of exploiting ligan-field properties of transition-metal and lathanide complexes leading to a quantified chemical insight into the individual metal-ligand interactions in these molecular species. Electronic spectroscopy and the ESR technique are well documented, but there has long been a need for a thorough description of magnetochemistry. A major section of this book therefore provides a details account of the physics and chemistry of paramagnetism. The second main section is concerned with those aspects of ligand-field theory that are required to construct the working composite defining ligand-field analysis. Though the book is intended for the research chemist, the subject matter and level of some of the material is suitable for both advanced undergraduate and postgraduate chemists and solid-state physicists. ...

Product Description

Discussed is the electromagnetic field theory and its mathematical methods. Maxwell’s equations are presented and explained. It follows a detailed discussion of electrostatics, flux, magnetostatics, quasi stationary fields and electromagnetic fields.

The author presents how to apply numerical methods like finite differences, finite elements, boundary elements, image charge methods, and Monte-Carlo methods to field theory problems. He offers an outlook on fundamental issues in physics including quantum mechanics. Some of these issues are still unanswered questions. A chapter dedicated to the theory of special relativity, which allows to simplify a number of field theory problems, complements this book.

A book whose usefulness is not limited to engineering students, but can be very helpful for physicists and other branches of science.

Electrical Engineering/Electromagnetics Methods for Electromagnetic Field Analysis A volume in the IEEE Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory Donald G. Dudley, Series Editor … a gigantic platter of formulae of the dyadic kind.’—Akhlesh Lakhtaki, Professor, The Pennsylvania State University This monograph discusses mathematical and conceptual methods applicable in the analysis of electromagnetic fields and waves. Dyadic algebra is reviewed and armed with new identities it is applied throughout the book. The power of dyadic operations is seen when working with boundary, sheet and interface conditions, medium equations, field transformations, Greens functions, plane wave problems, vector circuit theory, multipole and image sources. Dyadic algebra offers convenience in handling problems involving chiral and bianisotropic media, of recent interest because of their wide range of potential applications. The final chapter gives, for the first time in book form, a unified presentation of EIT, the exact image theory, introduced by this author and colleagues. EIT is a general method for solving problems involving layered media by replacing them through image sources located in complex space. The main emphasis of the monograph is not on specific results but methods of analysis. The contents should be of interest to scientists doing research work in various fields of electromagnetics, as well as to graduate students.

5-0 out of 5 stars wanna master Jackon?
If you wanna master Jackson's classic bible, this is absolutely a prerequisite!!.
Most people love Griffith, but this is more than it.
Some people complain about this book which is too mathematical, but math is the language of E&M. Without strict, precise math, you gonna get nothing from E&M.
This book, I bet, will solidify your all needed mathematical background to conquer Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics.
Specially, the concept on conductor is explained very well with very nice examples in Ch.6 and dielectrics in ch.10 is well treated.
Useful and powerful solved examples are available on the right place.
The only not well treated topic is a radiation part, but Griffith will compensate for this.
Again, I'll strongly recommend this book for anyone who will continue graduate study in physics, whatever he will major.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent practical and accessible reference.
This book is indeed very modular, if you have any previous EM training and the required mathematical skills you won't have any difficulty using this as a practical, working reference. As a consequence of the modularity, there is some repetition of the information but it's a small price to pay for the completeness of the individual modules.

One of my favorite features of the writing is the clear references to previous results making it easy to review the references (and completely eliminates any need to search the index).I far prefer this to the usual method to make only vague references to previously developed concepts and is one reason why I find this is a good reference work.

Overall, the level is more advanced than Cook though better written.Some of the development of the material is rather novel (e.g., Amperes Law) and considerably more approachable than corresponding works by Smythe (ugh), Peck, or Stratton.I recommend Feynmans lectures in addition to this book. I find the two complement each other quite nicely.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nicely done.
I believe there are basically two breeds in the world of EM textbooks. One is obviously J.D. Jackson and the other E.M. Purcell. If Griffiths follows Purcell's approach, I'd say Wangsness is in the style of Jackson (of course no direct comparison is possible, Jackson does not really discuss statics anyway).

Wangness is very much _detailed_ and provides ample examples, many of them kindly worked out. I am not sure if this book provides strong background in vector calculus, though. I always had troubles getting some geometrical intuitions. I guess I have learned more from Purcell in this respect.

Of course, there are many other great books such as Lorrain/Corson, Feynman volume 2 and such. Should be nice to look at those as well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest, but respectable.
... one might note that this book is developed in such a waythat makes it quite modular. At first Wangsness develops an examplecompletely, often leading to daunting equations. This is wonderful. However if you want to pick and choose a few key assumptions, and developed a more specific case, you can do that with Wagness' help, as well.

Some of the problems are tedious, and void of instruction. Oftentimes, one has to result to digging through the chapter just to find the correct equation, leaving you with no physical intuition of what is really happening. If a professor drew up their own problems to accompany this text, you'd definitely have a winner.END

5-0 out of 5 stars Griffiths this, Griffiths that.
OK, OK... so Griffiths is a very good text. I believe this book is better, having read both. Overall, 'EM Fields' is very well written, providing a strong background in vector calculus to bolster the topics that follow. Iagree with the other reviewer who writes that explanations are based onmathematical rather than physical arguments. However, I find this styleeasier to understand. I do not believe that this formalism detracts from anoverall grasp of the material, provided that physical intuition is used aswell. ... Read more

Product Description

Today's standard textbooks treat the theoretical structure of electric and magnetic fields, but their emphasis is on electromagnetic radiation and static-electric and magnetic fields. In this book, Eugene Parker provides advanced graduate students and researchers with a much-needed complement to existing texts, one that discusses the dynamic electromagnetism of the cosmos--that is, the vast magnetic fields that are carried bodily in the swirling ionized gases of stars and galaxies and throughout intergalactic space.

Parker is arguably the world's leading authority on solar wind and the effects of magnetic fields in the heliosphere, and his originality of thought and distinctive approach to physics are very much in evidence here. Seeking to enrich discussions in standard texts and correct misconceptions about the dynamics of these large-scale fields, Parker engages readers in a series of "conversations" that are at times anecdotal and even entertaining without ever sacrificing theoretical rigor. The dynamics he describes represents the Maxwell stresses of the magnetic field working against the pressure and inertia of the bulk motion of ionized gases, characterized in terms of the magnetic field and gas velocity. Parker shows how this dynamic interaction cannot be fully expressed in terms of the electric current and electric field.

Conversations on Electric and Magnetic Fields in the Cosmos goes back to basics to explain why classical hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics are inescapable, even in the deepest reaches of space.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Back Up
I recently took Electrodynamics with Jackson and frequently used this book as a backup/reference. I highly recommend it for that purpose, but it was not very useful as a learning tool by itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another good electromagnetics book
This is a great book!The treatment is accessible and the section on electrostatics is outstanding in comparison with many other books.The author goes out of his way to both explain the subject in detail and to share his rather obvious enjoyment of the subject.This is another case of "if you read all these books then you will know electrodynamics".Not everything is here but it is a great supplemental text and reference.I don't know if anyone is using it as a single textbook for a course however.For the practical physicist in solid state, optics, electrodynamics, etc. this is a must have.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book for the applied physicist.
There is a tendency nowadays, especially if you are at Harvard, to think of a physicist as someone who only works on group-theoretical notions and topological structures in particle physics and cosmology, with everythingelse that looks something like physics to be worked on by crude, practicalpeople in a electrical engineering department.This book, however, which was developed by a professor at Harvard's neighbor MIT, obviously has theattitude that the solution of partial differential equations appliedtoidealized (and therefore analytically solvable) problems in electromagnetictheory is still exciting physics.As such, this book belongs in the sameclass as Sommerfeld's "Electrodynamics" and Stratton's"Electromagnetic Theory." It is clearly written with good problemsets and covers enough material for a beginning graduate course.The unitsused are Gaussian, which makes for a better discussion of relativisticconcepts.The mathematics used includes contour integrals, Greenfunctions, and Hankel functions.At first sight, the author's use of onlyE and B and never D and H may come across as the fanaticism of theultra-pure physicist.On the contrary, it makes for a clearer discussionof the boundary-value problem at the interface of continuous polarized andmagnetic media. ...
