"Basic Electromagnetism and Materials" is the product of many years of teaching basic and applied electromagnetism. This textbook can be used to teach electromagnetism to a wide range of undergraduate science majors in physics, electrical engineering or materials science. However, by making lesser demands on mathematical knowledge than competing texts, and by emphasizing electromagnetic properties of materials and their applications, this textbook is particularly appropriate for students of materials science. Many competing texts focus on the study of propagation waves either in the microwave or optical domain, whereas "Basic Electromagnetism and Materials" covers the entire electromagnetic domain and the physical response of materials to these waves.
