Engineering Electromagnetics – William H. Hayt, John A. Buck – 8th Edition


First published just over 50 years ago and now in its Eighth Edition, Bill Hayt and John Buck’s is a classic text that has been updated for education today. This widely-respected stresses and , and discusses the material in an understandable and readable way. Numerous illustrations and analogies are provided to aid the reader in grasping the difficult concepts.

In addition, independent is facilitated by the presence of many examples and . Important updates and revisions have been included in this edition. One of the most significant is a new chapter on radiation and antennas. This chapter covers the basic principles of radiation, wire antennas, simple arrays, and transmit-receive .
