Electromagnetism for Engineers (An Introductory Course) 3rd Edition by P.Hammond (University of Southampton, Southampton UK)
Pergamon Press

Level 5

 

A concept book with little Mathematical involved.

It contain the history development of Electromagnetism.

A very interesting book to get to know about Electromagnetic before going into detail.

I found this book after I derive my view on the mathematical representation on electromagnetic

and confirm my derivation is all correct! I was so happy to find out my crazy approach to derive

the electromagnetic is actual also the correct sequence in the history of electromagnetic.

So happy, and I thought of this idea just to help me remember the mathematical operation and

equation. I never thought that this crazy approach actually help me in understanding the basic

needed in this subject.

The imagination I had in mind during my procedure in deriving is fully described in this book.

comment by Lim Siong Boon

 

A fully revised and updated edition of one of the most widely used textbooks on electromagnetism covering all fundamental aspects of this important topic. Written as a basic introductory text for beginning electrical engineering students, this book adopts an elementary and practical approach requiring little knowledge of mathematics beyond simple differentiation and integration. This new edition is enhanced with restyled diagrams, a wide selection of exercise (numerical answers supplied) and an important new section on skin effect in conductors. Essential reading for anyone needing a sound basic knowledge of electromagneticism.

Contents

The principles of electromagnetism. Electric charges at rest---I. Electric charges charges at rest---II. Steady electric currents. The magnetic field of steady electric currents. Electromagnetic induction. The magnetic effects of iron. Electromagnetic radiation. Appendices. Further reading. Index

 

 

Electromagnetic Field Theory                                                 a problem solving approach by Markus Zahn
John Wiley & Sons, Inc

Level 5

 

A quite detail and well organise book on electromagnetic.

I was looking for electromagnetic plane wave information when I came across this book.

It has a great basic and detail on plane wave, with detail and well illustrated diagram.

The plane wave illustrated in a figure with the concept of the theory of relative give me

a clearer idea of components used in plane wave which I derive earlier

I also learn other theory that is link to the electromagnetic wave that is seldom mention

in other books. e.g.. theory of relative, Doppler effect, etc......

The explanation is quite clear with

50% not so strong mathematics, 50% simple English explanation.

There are other topic in this book that I did not have time to take a look.

Base on the explanation on Electrodynamics- Fields And Waves, I can tell that it is a good book.

Electromagnetic Concepts and Application by G.G.Skitek.S.V.Marshall
Prentice Hall

Level 5

 

Easy, simple to read with detail illustration for applying electromagnetic theory.

A good reference book after the concept is about a level.

Recommend reading "Electromagnetism for Engineers (An Introductory Course)" for concept before going into a little more detail.

comment by Lim Siong Boon

 

ELECTROMAGNETIC CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS presents an interesting, detailed, and well-organized approach to what is often considered an abstract and difficult subject. Both those experienced in this field as well as those new to it will welcome this self-contained treatment that emphasizes self-study with many excellent illustrative problems, graded drills and review questions, and the novel manner in which new concepts are introduced.

"It is ironic," the authors write, "that electromagnetics is viewed as a highly theoretical course when it is actually based solidly on experimental results, but Maxwell's equations do seem abstract unless their experimental basis is known. In this book we have approached each new concepts as though it were an experiment being conducted."

Vector analysis is reviewed in the first chapter to provide the required mathematical foundation for the ensuring extensive coverage, which includes six chapters devoted to electrostatics, two to magnetostatics, and four to time-varying electric and magnetic fields.

M&T Books

Level 5

A good programming consulting book. Teaches depth into compiling level. Cover good object design, other programming tips and pit falls. Recommended for programmers who have some experience with object oriented programming.

comment by Lim Siong Boon 

 

Drawing on the best of the Software Development Conference, Black Belt C++: The Masters collection brings together papers written by gurus of the C++ programming language. Reading this book you'll see why uncompromising knowledge and quality have made the C++ track at the Software Development Conference so popular. No other book will give you the insights into C++ programming offered here by the masters of the industry.

Written for the intermediate C++ programmer, each chapter is a real pro of his subject. You'll discover new depths in seemingly basic topics, ways to evaluate development tools, a better way to look at the confusing issue of multiple inheritance, a method to reduce needless recompilation and hide the underlying implementation from the end user, and guidelines for designing good C++ class libraries. You'll find out what really goes on under-the-hood of a C++ complier, explore the depths of heap allocation techniques, and learn why no C++ design methodology ever seems to be easy to understand or use. The book is filled with useful guidelines and design techniques, opinions, facts and lore about the language that's rapidly becoming the most popular choice for general-purpose programming.

I would recommend "Understanding Digital Signal Processing" by

Richard G. Lyons, Addison Wesley, ISBN 0-201-63467-8.

Rick covers the subject in a very clear way without the (common)

obfuscation, with a focus on the "understanding" in the title

(he also rides a Harley, which must count for something ;-).

Practical C++ Programming Steve Oualline
O'Reilly & Associates, Inc (1995)

Level 5

Althrough this book may consider a little out dated, most of the information covers the transitioning from olden C to C++ and some history. It cover back to the basic of writing good C languge and optimizing of the codes. The C++ language is well covered. On the whole the written text is relatively easy to read and understand. Suitable for advance programmers.

from the book

Fast becoming the standard language of commercial software development, C++ is an update of the C programming language, adding object-oriented features that are very helpful in today's larger graphical application.

Practical C++ Programming is a complete introduction to the C++ language for the beginning programmer, and also for C programmers transitioning to C++. Unlike most other C++ books, this book emphasizes a practical, real-world approach, including how to debug, how to make your code understandable to others, and how to understand other people's code.

Topic covered include:

          Good programming style

          C++ syntax, what to use and what not to use

          Debugging and optimization

          Common programming mistakes

Practical C++ Programming describles standard C++ features that are supported by all UNIX C++ compilers, including gcc, DOS/Windows, and NT compilers including Microsoft Visual C++ and Macintosh compiler.
