This is a revised version of Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields and Waves. The general level is unchanged despite the fact that the phrase Introduction to has been omitted in the title. This book is intended primarily for students of Physics or Electrical Engineering at the junior or senior levels although some schools will prefer to use it with first-year graduate students. The book should also be useful for scientists and engineers who wish to review the subject. The major change has been the addition of two chapters on relativity. The aim of this book is to give the reader a working knowledge of the basic concepts of electromagnetism. Indeed as Alfred North Whitehead stated half a century ago Education is the acquisition of the art of the utilization of knowledge. This explains the relatively large number of examples and problems. It also explains why we have covered fewer subjects more thoroughly. For instance Laplaces equation is solved in rectangular and in spherical coordinates but not in cylindrical coordinates.
