    About the Book

    This book was developed at Simon Fraser University for an upper-level physics course. Along with a careful exposition of electricity and magnetism, it devotes a chapter to ferromagnets. According to the course description, the topics covered were “electromagnetics, magnetostatics, waves, transmission lines, wave guides,antennas, and radiating systems.”

    About the Contributors


    John Cochran was a charter faculty member in the Department of Physics at Simon Fraser University. He was highly influential in charting the course of the department over its first several decades. He served as Department Chair from 1968 through 1974, and as Dean of Science from 1981 through 1985. As a researcher, Professor Cochran was pivotal in developing an internationally recognized research program in magnetism and magnetic materials at SFU. He served as a mentor and collaborator in this area to faculty members who came later, including Professors Tony Arrott, Brett Heinrich and Erol Girt. In addition to his service, Professor Cochran was an excellent teacher. This textbook was widely used at SFU and elsewhere.

    Bretislav Heinrich got his PhD degree at the Czechoslovakian Academy of Sciences. He came to the Physices Department at SFU as a post-doctoral fellow in 1969 and joined the research faculty also at SFU, a rare occurrence, eventually becoming a full professor in 1996. He has published over 250 papers in international Journals and 14 book chapters. He is also a co-Author of the book “Ultrathin Magnetic Structures”.
