Summary This established, didactically excellent textbook unifies intuitiveness with extraordinary precision of its terminology and the derivation of concepts. It was developed as manuscript to teach students in electrical engineering, and has served to do so for thousands of students over two decades. Discussed is the electromagnetic field theory and its mathematical methods. Maxwell's equations are presented and explained. It follows a detailed discussion of electrostatics, flux problems, magnetostatics, quasi stationary fields, and electromagnetic waves. The author presents how to apply numerical methods like finite differences, finite elements, boundary elements, image charge methods, and Monte-Carlo methods to field theory problems. He offers an outlook on fundamental issues in physics including quantum mechanics. Some of these issues concern still unanswered questions. A chapter dedicated to the theory of special relativity, which allows to simplify a number of field theory problems, complements this book. This book's usefulness is not limited to engineering students, but can also be very helpful for physicists and other branches of science.
