Description For Sale in Indiansubcontinent only The Electromagnetic Model Vector Analysis Static Electric Fields Solution of Electrostatic Problems Steady Electric Currents Static Magnetic Fields Time-Varying Fields and Maxwell's Equations Place Electromagnetic Waves Theory and Applications of Transmission Lines Waveguides and Cavity Resonators Antennas and Radiating Systems Respected for its accuracy, its smooth and logical flow ofideas, and its clear presentation, Field and Wave Electromagneticshas become an established textbook in the field ofelectromagnetics. This book builds the electromagnetic model usingan axiomatic approach in steps: first for static electric fields,then for static magnetic fields, and finally for time-varyingfields leading to Maxwell's equations. This approach results in anorganized and systematic development of the subject matter.Applications of derived relations to fundamental phenomena andelectromagnetic technologies are explained. Field and Wave Electromagnetics, Second Edition featuresmany examples of practical applications to give students anexcellent physical -- as well as mathematical -- understanding ofimportant concepts. These include applications drawn from importantnew areas of technology such as optical fibers, radome design,satellite communication, and microstrip lines. There is also addedcoverage of several new topics, including Hall effect, radarequation and scattering cross section, transients in transmissionlines, waveguides and circular cavity resonators, wave propagationin the ionosphere, and helical antennas. New exercises, newproblems, and many worked-out examples make this complex materialmore accessible to students.

I find 'Introduction to EM's by Griffiths ' to be far superior to Cheng's texts. Griffiths tretise duscussed all the relevant mathematics but explains the thought process behind the maths in much more detail.
Do the pepsi challenge. Read a chapter from Cheng's, Then read the corresponding chapter in Griffith's and see which text is clearer. For me the choice was clear.
Lastly, many prayers if you are stuck taking EM from an online institution (no names here) that uses the 'accelerated' 7.5 week format per course (and relies on Cheng's text) !
You will definitely need to do a pre-course prep to optimize your understanding and grade.
This book might be a tough read for someone who is exposed to this subject for the first time. Also, you need a strong math base if you want to follow this book (and this subject in general). If you are learning the subject for the first time then a good book to supplement this one is "Introductory Electromagnetics" by Popovic and Popovic. For a more extensive treatment on electromagnetic waves, a good book would be "Electromagnetic Waves" by Inan and Inan.
There are a few equations that the reasoning is a little thin, but still is the closest to "the book".
