Collective Phenomena in Synchrotron Radiation Sources: Prediction, Diagnostics, Countermeasures
This book helps dispel the notion that collective phenomena, which have become increasingly important in modern storage rings, are an obscure and inaccessible topic. The book serves as a valuable guide on how to improve synchrotrons and other storage rings. Despite an emphasis on synchrotron light sources, the basic concepts presented here are valid for other facilities as well.
Reconstruction of Macroscopic Maxwell Equations: A Single Susceptibility Theory (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)
Throughout my whole career including student time I have had a feeling that leaning and teaching electromagnetism, especially macroscopic Maxwell equations (M-eqs) is dif?cult. In order to make a good use of these equations, it seemed necessary to be able to use certain empirical knowledges and model-dependent concepts, rather than pure logics.
Fundamentals to Electromagnetics with MATLAB, Prelimenary Edition
Electromagnetic Field Theory is one of the fundamental courses that an electrical and computer engineering student is required to take in order to gain a physical understanding of the foundations and the heritage of the field that will occupy his or her professional life for the several decades following graduation. The acquiring of an appreciation for the laws of nature that govern and limit the speed of the smallest computer chip continue to be crucial as this speed approaches the ultimate limit. With the many changes that are occurring in undergraduate curriculums due to the rapid development of new technologies and hence additional courses, it is common to find that only one course in electromagnetic theory is now required for students. However, most of the students are “computer savvy” and have been introduced to and have used MATLAB in their previous courses and are motivated by its ability to create pictures on a computer screen that can help illustrate complicated physical phenomena.

Radiation Protection and Dosimetry: An Introduction to Health Physics
This book provides a comprehensive yet accessible overview of all relevant topics in the field of radiation protection (health physics). The text is organized to introduce the reader to basic principles of radiation emission and propagation, to review current knowledge and historical aspects of the biological effects of radiation, and to cover important operational topics such as radiation shielding and dosimetry. The author’s website contains materials for instructors including PowerPoint slides for lectures and worked-out solutions to end-of-chapter exercises. The book serves as an essential handbook for practicing health physics professionals.

2008+ Solved Problems in Electromagnetics
This helpful volume was first published in 1992 as part of the Problem-Solving Series. This edition continues the tradition of the original, presenting problems according to topic areas. Each problem is accompanied by its solution, given with a step-by-step discussion that guides the student in its formulation.
