Errata: Computational Electromagnetics for RF and Microwave Engineering, David B. Davidson, Cambridge University Press 2005.
The following errata are as of 05 June 2009 (note that some of these errata were corrected in the 2nd printing, as indicated.)
p. 26, line 8, "devolopment", should read "development". (corrected 2nd printing)
p.57 Eq. (2.92) "X(t)" should be "x(t)". (corrected 2nd printing)
p.72. 3rd line of eq. (3.15): second term "-E_x(...)" should read "-E_y(…)". (corrected 2nd printing)
p.75. 3rd line of eq (3.22), "E_x^{tot}(i+1/2,j,n)" should read "E_x^{tot}(i_L+1/2,j,n)" (i.e., subscript L missing in i). (corrected 2nd printing)
p.79. Eq. (3.35). H_z(i,j,n+1) should read H_z(i,j,n), and H_z(i,j-1,n+1) should read H_z(i,j-1,n)
Eq. (3.36) - same correction in index for H_z (twice).
p.95. In both equations at the end of the page, all the terms "\Gamma*e^{j 2 \beta_1x}" should read "\Gamma*e^{j 2 \beta_1x x}", ie. there is a terminal x missing in the argument of the exponent.
p.95. In the 2nd last equation on the page, "\hat{z}" should be added at the end of the equation.
p.96. Just before the eq. (3.44), in the unnumbered expression for "\eta_2", in the denominator of the fraction under the square root, "\sigma/(j \omega \mu_2)" should read "\sigma/(j \omega \epsilon_2)".
p.96 Eq. (3.45) "\beta_x^t" should read "\beta_{2x}".
p.98. in all three equations (3.51 to 3.54), the last factor "\beta_2y y" should be part of the exponent.
p.100. Eqs. (3.64) and (3.65) - correct as for p.79, eqs. (3.35) and (3.36).
p.123. Eq 4.9: the "n" in the equation should be "m"
p.242. line 13 and 14 of text: j is missing from in front of the tan \delta term on both lines.
p.269. Ref [7]. Title should read "An introduction to spectral domain method of moments formulations".
p.302 Eq. (9.38). This equation is correct, but note that it assumes a homogeneous domain, with
\epsilon constant throughout.
p.318. For consistency with the rest of the book's notation, [e], [e_f], [e_p] etc on this page should read {e}, {e_f}, {e_p} etc. (corrected 2nd printing)
p.328 Fig 9.7 The mesh size h in this figure is in centimeters.
p.360. Eq. 10.25, first line. The bold n should be \hat{n} (ie caret-ed, not bold) for consistency with the rest of the book's notation. Also on p.360, the bold K in K^{int} in the first line of 10.26 should be typeset as \vec{K}^{int} (which puts an arrow over K); similarly, J^{int} K^{int} on the last line of the 2nd para on this page, and H on the 2nd line of the 3rd para. Again, these are not actually wrong, but are inconsistent with the notation in the rest of the book. (Corrected 2nd printing, apart from first J^{int} in Eq. 10.26.)
p.369 Eq. (10.45) 2nd line, the term "(1-2\beta[S])" should read "(1-2\beta)[S]"
p.374. Eq. (10.52), the last entry should be 12, not 11.(corrected 2nd printing)
p.391. line above eq. (A.5): "A= (1/2 \ell h) = (1/2 \ell_3 \ell_2 \sin \theta_1)" should read "A= (1/2) \ell h = (1/2) \ell_3 \ell_2 \sin \theta_1", (i.e. closing parentheses should be moved, twice). (corrected 2nd printing)
