"This special volume addresses numerical methods applicable to solving problems in electromagnetics. Electromagnetism is involved in a very wide range of phenomena and devices. Electromagnetism is key to our understanding of the source of the earth's magnetic field, the northern lights and sunspots." --Philip Huddleston
