Computational Electromagnetics is a young and growing
discipline, expanding as a result of the steadily increasing demand
for software for the design and analysis of electrical devices.
This book introduces three of the most popular numerical methods
for simulating electromagnetic fields: the finite difference
method, the finite element method and the method of moments. In
particular it focuses on how these methods are used to obtain valid
approximations to the solutions of Maxwell's equations, using, for
example, "staggered grids" and "edge elements." The main goal of
the book is to make the reader aware of different sources of errors
in numerical computations, and also to provide the tools for
assessing the accuracy of numerical methods and their solutions. To
reach this goal, convergence analysis, extrapolation, von Neumann
stability analysis, and dispersion analysis are introduced and used
frequently throughout the book. Another major goal of the book is
to provide students with enough practical understanding of the
methods so they are able to write simple programs on their own. To
achieve this, the book contains several MATLAB programs and
detailed description of practical issues such as assembly of finite
element matrices and handling of unstructured meshes. Finally, the
book aims at making the students well-aware of the strengths and
weaknesses of the different methods, so they can decide which
method is best for each problem.
In thissecond edition, extensive computer projects are added as
well as new material throughout.
Reviews of previous edition:
"The well-written monograph is devoted to students at the
undergraduate level, but is also useful for practising engineers."
