This introductory textbook, now in its 9th edition, is an ideal accompaniment for physics students in both their basic and higher-level courses. It clearly lays out the basic principles of electricity and magnetism in an easily understandable manner. Numerous descriptions and illustrations of experiments provide the basis for effective exam preparation. Proven experimental and application-related aspects play a central role and the disciplines of electrical engineering and electronics, essential to experimental physics, are included at many junctures. The book is also directed at teachers and engineers, who will find in this volume an excellent reference work with a detailed index. This updated and amended new edition has further been supplemented with numerous Internet addresses. These links can be found at www.degruyter.de and are regularly updated by the author.
