New to This Edition
 SI units used in the first 10 chapters. Gaussian units are retained in the later chapters.
 Over 110 new problems.
 New sections on the principles of numerical techniques for electrostatics and magnetostatics, as well as some elementary problems.
 Faraday's Law and quasistatic fields are now in Chapter 5 with magnetostatics, permitting a more logical discussion of energy and inductances.
 Discussion of radiation by chargecurrent sources, in both elementary and exact multipole forms, has been consolidated in Chapter 9.
 Applications to scattering and diffraction are now in Chapter 10.
 Two new sections in Chapter 8 discuss the principles of optical fibers and dielectric waveguides.
 The treatment of energy loss (Chapter 13) has been shortened and strengthened.
 The discussion of synchrotron radiation as a research tool in Chapter 14 has been augmented by a detailed section on the physics of wigglers and undulators for synchrotron light sources.
 New material in Chapter 16 on radiation reaction and models of classical charged particles.
