New Book Announcement:

Boundary Element Methods for Electrical Engineers

Billerica, MA. - This is the first text on Boundary Element Methods that is produced specifically for electrical engineers. Written in the form of a primer, it presents the BEM in a simple fashion that will help beginners understand its very basic principles. The authors begin by deriving the BEM for the simplest potential problems, before building on these to formulate methods for a wide range of applications in electromagnetics.

Introducing boundary element fundamentals in a way which will enable readers to solve complex problems on their own, the book is designed for undergraduate and graduate students of electronics and/or electrical engineering. It will also be useful to researchers and professional engineers who wish to exploit the full potential of the BEM in electrical engineering.

Boundary Element Methods for Electrical Engineers is Volume 4 in WIT Press's Advances in Electrical Engineering and Electromagnetics book series.
