This great text was originally composed by Nobel Laureate Prof. Max Born and Prof. Emil Wolf in 1959. Soon it became a widely recognized material for researchers in the fields of electromagnetism, optics, material science, and many other engineering disciplines, after many times of revision in the following half century. Rigorous modeling and derivation procedures are found everywhere in the book, along with physical insights associated with each topic. This volume has became a must-have book for researchers in physics and engineering, serving as both an introductory and advanced reference material. As a researcher in engineering, I found this book extremely useful for studying every research problem about electromagnetic waves. Clear logical reduction process is the style of this book. Many people may find it complementary to other recent application-oriented books for its focus on theoretical background.
