Electromagnetism sets a new standard in physics education. Throughout the book, the theory is illustrated with real-life applications in modern technology. It also includes detailed work examples and step-by-step explanations to help readers develop their problem-solving strategies and skills and consolidate their understanding. In addition to a meticulous development of thse traditional, analytical mathematical approaches, readers are also introduced to a range of techniques required for solving problems using computers. Electromagnetism provides an ideal preparation for readers who plan advanced studies in electrodynamics as well as those moving into industry or engineering .

2.3.1 □ Gauss's Theorem Gauss's theorem, also called the divergence theorem,
states that the flux of a vector quantity outward through a closed surface S is
equal to the integral of the divergence of the function in the enclosed volume V, ...
Gauss's theorem may appear abstract at first sight and this discussion of it has
been quite brief. But it will become more familiar in Chapter 3 where we will use it
often. We'll also gain good physical insights into its meaning as we apply it to ...
2.5 □ THE HELMHOLTZ THEOREM We end this chapter with a theorem in
vector calculus that requires an understanding of the basic concepts defined
earlier. Preliminaries A vector function (or field) F(x) that has zero curl, V x F = 0,
is called ...
