Thoroughly updated and revised, this third edition of Sadiku's Elements of Electromagnetics is designed for the standard sophomore/junior level electromagnetics course taught in departments of electrical engineering. It takes a two-semester approach to fundamental concepts and applications in electromagnetics beginning with vecotr analysis-which is then applied throughout the text. A balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields prepares students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors. Mathematical theorems are treated separately from physical concepts. Students, therefore, do not need to review any more mathematics than their level of proficiency requires. Sadiku is well-known for his excellent pedagogy, and this edition refines his approach even further. Student-oriented pedagogy comprises: chapter introductions showing how the forthcoming material relates to the previous chapter, summaries, boxed formulas, and multiple choice review questions with answers allowing students to gauge their comprehension. Many new problems have been added throughout the text, as well as a new chapter on "Modern Topics" covering microwaves, electromagnetic interference and compatability, and optical fibers. This book is appropriate for sophomore/junior level students in electrical engineering. It will also be accompanied by a Solutions Manual, available free to adopters of the main text.

Time domain electrometry (TDE) is a general term which includes time domain reflectrometry and time domain transmissiometry. It is a commercially-viable technique for leak detection, contaminant monitoring, and moisture content determination in contaminant transport modelling. Under demographic pressure, contaminated sites are increasingly being re-developed for domestic and industrial use; and this presents an urgent need for reliable, non-intrusive and integrated methods of subsurface characterization, detection and monitoring of organic and inorganic pollutants, soil moisture content and salinity. This book provides an overview of the potential application of TDE in geoenvironmental engineering and describes the geophysical methods used.

Design of Analog Filters integrates theory and practice in order to provide a modern "how-to" approeach to design. Operational amplifiers are not assumed to be ideal but are represented by realistic models so that deviations appearing in practice can be anticipated and assessed. By pre-distorting design parameters, exact results can be obtained. High-frequency inductor-based active filter design is included, as is a discussion of noise that in many cases is the deciding issue for making a design practical. A chapter on Switched-Capacitor (SC) filters provides exact SC-design methods that build on the well-known active-RC methods discussed in earlier chapters. A concise but self-contained treatment of passive L-C ladder design is included to enable interested readers to understand the theory in a short time. Methods of implementing L-C ladders using opamp-R-C and SC circuits are discussed to obtain low-sensitivity filters. All design equations are derived in the book, starting from basic theory and opamp models. Readers who need to implement working designs as soon as possible can start directly from design methods and equations. The revised second edition now contains a chapter on noise, a comparison of active and passive indulter design, and a discussion of high-frequency active filter design. Detailed solutions along with Spice-based verifications (tests) are provided for all examples and problems. The Harris HA2542 - 2 opamps have been replaced by Texas Instruments OPA -300, both in the book and the solutions manual.

A generation ago, "cyberspace" was just a term from science fiction, used to describe the nascent network of computers linking a few university labs. Today, our entire modern way of life, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet. And the cybersecurity issues that result challenge literally everyone: politicians wrestling with everything from cybercrime to online freedom; generals protecting the nation from new forms of attack, while planning new cyberwars; business executives defending firms from once unimaginable threats, and looking to make money off of them; lawyers and ethicists building new frameworks for right and wrong. Most of all, cybersecurity issues affect us as individuals. We face new questions in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to simply how to protect ourselves and our families from a new type of danger. And yet, there is perhaps no issue that has grown so important, so quickly, and that touches so many, that remains so poorly understood. In Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know?, New York Times best-selling author P. W. Singer and noted cyber expert Allan Friedman team up to provide the kind of easy-to-read, yet deeply informative resource book that has been missing on this crucial issue of 21st century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book is structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do? Along the way, they take readers on a tour of the important (and entertaining) issues and characters of cybersecurity, from the "Anonymous" hacker group and the Stuxnet computer virus to the new cyber units of the Chinese and U.S. militaries. Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know? is the definitive account on the subject for us all, which comes not a moment too soon.
