This hands-on introduction to computational electromagnetics (CEM) links theoretical coverage of the three key methods – the FDTD, MoM and FEM – to open source MATLAB codes (freely available online) in 1D, 2D and 3D, together with many practical hints and tips gleaned from the author's 25 years of experience in the field. Updated and extensively revised, this second edition includes a new chapter on 1D FEM analysis, and extended 3D treatments of the FDTD, MoM and FEM, with entirely new 3D MATLAB codes. Coverage of higher-order finite elements in 1D, 2D and 3D is also provided, with supporting code, in addition to a detailed 1D example of the FDTD from a FEM perspective. With running examples through the book and end-of-chapter problems to aid understanding, this is ideal for professional engineers and senior undergraduate/graduate students who need to master CEM and avoid common pitfalls in writing code and using existing software.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"...The strengths of this book are in the discussion of coding hints and a section of further reading. These sections enable the reader to practically apply the book's teachings...This could be recommended as a text book for a graduate course on computational electromagnetics." -Dr. A. Alphones, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
