Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A unique resource for physicists and engineers working with magnetic fields An understanding of magnetic phenomena is essential for anyone working on the practical application of electromagnetic theory. Magnetic Fields: A Comprehensive Theoretical Treatise for Practical Use provides physicists and engineers with a thorough treatment of the magnetic aspects of classical electromagnetic theory, focusing on key issues and problems arising in the generation and application of magnetic fields. From magnetic potentials and diffusion phenomena to magnetohydrodynamics and properties of matter-topics are carefully selected for their relevance to the theoretical framework as well as current technologies. Outstanding in its organization, clarity, and scope, Magnetic Fields: Examines a wide range of practical problems, from magnetomechanical devices to magnetic acceleration mechanisms Opens each chapter with reference to pertinent engineering examples Provides sufficient detail enabling readers to follow the derivation of the results Discusses solution methods and their application to different problems Includes more than 300 graphs, 40 tables, 2,000 numbered formulas, and extensive references to the professional literature Reviews the essential mathematics in the appendices
