This invaluable text has been developed to provide students with more background on the applications of electricity and magnetism, particularly with those topics which relate to current research. For example, waveguides (both metal and dielectric) are discussed more thoroughly than in most texts because they are an important laboratory tool and important components of modern communications. In a sense, this book modernizes the topics covered in the typical course on electricity and magnetism. It provides not only solid background for the student who chooses a field which uses techniques requiring knowledge of electricity and magnetism, but also general background for the physics major.

Historical accounts of successful laboratories often consist primarily of reminiscences by their directors and the eminent people who studied or worked in these laboratories. Such recollections customarily are delivered at the celebration of a milestone in the history of the laboratory, such as the institution's fiftieth or one hundredth anniversary. Three such accounts of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge have been recorded. The first of these, A History of the Cavendish Laboratory, 1871-1910, was published in 1910 in honor of the twenty fifth anniversary of Joseph John Thomson's professorship there. The second, The Cavendish Laboratory, 1874-1974, was published in 1974 to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the Cavendish. The third, A Hundred Years and More of Cambridge Physics, is a short pamphlet, also published at the centennial of the 1 Cavendish. These accounts are filled with the names of great physicists (such as James Clerk Maxwell, Lord Rayleigh, J. J. Thomson, Ernest Rutherford, and William Lawrence Bragg), their glorious achievements (for example, the discoveries of the electron, the neutron, and DNA) and interesting anecdotes about how these achievements were reached. But surely a narrative that does justice to the history of a laboratory must recount more than past events. Such a narrative should describe a living entity and provide not only details of the laboratory's personnel, organization, tools, and tool kits, but should also explain how these components interacted within 2 their wider historical, cultural, and social contexts.

A. S. Ramsey (1867-1954) was a distinguished Cambridge mathematician and President of Magdalene College. He wrote several textbooks 'for the use of higher divisions in schools and for first-year students at university'. This book on electricity and magnetism, first published in 1937, and based upon his lectures over many years, was 'adapted more particularly to the needs of candidates for Part I of the Mathematical Tripos'. It covers electrostatics, conductors and condensers, dielectrics, electrical images, currents, magnetism and electromagnetism, and magnetic induction. The book is interspersed with examples for solution, for some of which answers are provided.

This book is devoted to some analytical and numerical methods for analyzing industrial problems related to emerging technologies such as digital image processing, material sciences and financial derivatives affecting banking and financial institutions. Case studies are based on industrial projects given by reputable industrial organizations of Europe to the Institute of Industrial and Business Mathematics, Kaiserslautern, Germany. Mathematical methods presented in the book which are most reliable for understanding current industrial problems include Iterative Optimization Algorithms, Galerkin's Method, Finite Element Method, Boundary Element Method, Quasi-Monte Carlo Method, Wavelet Analysis, and Fractal Analysis. The Black-Scholes model of Option Pricing, which was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in Economics, is presented in the book. In addition, basic concepts related to modeling are incorporated in the book. Audience: The book is appropriate for a course in Industrial Mathematics for upper-level undergraduate or beginning graduate-level students of mathematics or any branch of engineering.
