Electromagnetics is credited with the greatest achievements of physics in the 19th century. Despite its long history of development, due to its fundamental nature and broad base, research in applied electromagnetics is still vital and going strong. In recent years electromagnetics played a major role in a wide range of disciplines, including wireless communication, remote sensing of the environment, military defense, and medical applications, among many others. Graduate students interested in such exciting fields of research need a strong foundation in field theory, which was part of the motivation for writing this book on classical electromagnetics but with an eye on its modern applications.
Kamal Sarabandi is the Fawwaz T. Ulaby Distinguished University Professor and the Rufus S. Teesdale Professor of Engineering serving in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. His research interests include microwave and millimeter-wave radar remote sensing, electromagnetic wave scattering and propagation, antennas, meta-materials, and bio-electromagnetics. Dr. Sarabandi served as a member of NASA’s Advisory Council for two consecutive terms (2006-2010) as well as the President of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (2015-2016). His contributions to the field of electromagnetics have been recognized by many awards including the Humboldt Research Award, the IEEE GRSS Distinguished Achievement Award, the IEEE Judith A. Resnik medal, the IEEE GRSS Education Award, and the NASA Group Achievement Award. He is a Fellow of IEEE and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
