Intended as a textbook for electromagnetics or a reference for practicing engineers, the book uses the computer software packages QuickField and MATLAB for visualizing electric and magnetic fields, and for calculating their resulting forces, charge, and current distributions. The concepts of electromagnetism “come alive” as the readers model real world problems and experiment with currents in biological tissue under electrical stimulation, for superconducting magnetic shielding, Monte Carlo methods, etc.


  • Application-based examples in the text include the calculation of currents in biological tissue under electrical stimulation, superconducting magnetic shielding, etc.
  • Uses QuickField and MATLAB as tools for teaching applications of electromagnetics
  • Builds understanding of the qualitative behavior of electromagnetic field principles with visualization of color, contour, and vector field plots in the post processing module
  • Develops a connection between analytical and numerical solutions of electromagnetic, mechanical, and thermal physics problems
