This book provides state-of-the-art knowledge on integral methods in low-frequency electromagnetics. Blending theory with numerous examples, it introduces key aspects of the integral methods used in engineering as a powerful alternative to PDE-based models. Readers will get complete coverage of:
The electromagnetic field and its basic characteristics
An overview of solution methods
Solutions of electromagnetic fields by integral expressions
Integral and integrodifferential methods
Indirect solutions of electromagnetic fields by the boundary element method
Integral equations in the solution of selected coupled problems
Numerical methods for integral equations
All computations presented in the book are done by means of the authors' own codes, and a significant amount of their own results is included. At the book's end, they also discuss novel integral techniques of a higher order of accuracy, which are representative of the future of this rapidly advancing field.
Integral Methods in Low-Frequency Electromagnetics is of immense interest to members of the electrical engineering and applied mathematics communities, ranging from graduate students and PhD candidates to researchers in academia and practitioners in industry.
