CAIRO BOOKS's Description
An informal and highly accessible writing style, a simple treatment of
mathematics, and clear guide to applications, have made this book a classic
text in electrical and electronic engineering. Students will find it both
readable and comprehensive. The fundamental ideas relevant to the understanding
of the electrical properties of materials are emphasized; in addition, topics
are selected in order to explain the operation of devices having applications
(or possible future applications) in engineering.
The mathematics, kept deliberately to a minimum, is well within the grasp of a
second-year student. This is achieved by choosing the simplest model that can
display the essential properties of a phenomenom, and then examining the
difference between the ideal and the actual behaviour.
The whole text is designed as an undergraduate course. However most individual
sections are self contained and can be used as background reading in graduate
courses, and for interested persons who want to explore advances in
microelectronics, lasers, nanotechnology and several other topics that impinge
on modern life.
