Kong joined the MIT faculty in He supervised well over students toward completion of their graduate theses in EECS. Since , he set up a branch of The Electromagnetics Academy at Zhejiang University, led a research group and had devoted numerous efforts over there. Among his numerous awards are the Pan Wen Yuan outstanding research award, S. A Fellow of IEEE and the Optical Society of America, he published more than 30 books on electromagnetics and more than research papers and book chapters. His most important publication is book of Electromagnetic Wave Theory, in which great emphasis is placed on the fundamental importance of the k vector in electromagnetic wave theory.

Books by Jin Au Kong Once you make a promise, you should keep it. Kong This book presents a unified macroscopic theory of electromagnetic waves in accordance with the principle of special relativity from the point of view of the form invariance of the Maxwell equations and the constitutive relations.

Great emphasis is placed on the fundamental importance of the k vector in electromagnetic wave theory. This is similar to the fundamental unit for temporal frequency Hz, which is cycle per second in time variation. The unit Ko is directly proportional to the unit Hz; one Ko in spatial frequency corresponds to MHz in temporal frequency.

This is a textbook on electromagnetic wave theory, and topics essential to the understanding of electromagnetic waves are selected and presented. Chapter 1 presents fundamental laws and equations for electromagnetic theory. Chapter 2 is devoted to the treatment of transmission line theory. Electromagnetic waves in media are studied in Chapter 3 with the kDB system developed to study waves in anisotropic and bianisotropic media. Chapter 4 presents a detailed treatment of reflection, transmission, guidance, and resonance of electromagnetic waves.

Starting with Cerenkov radiation, we study radiation and antenna theory in Chapter 5. Scattering by spheres, cylinders, rough surfaces, and volume inhomogeneities are treated in Chapter 7. The problem section at the end of each section provides useful exercise and applications. The various topics in the book can be taught independently, and the material is organized in the order of increasing complexity in mathematical techniques and conceptual abstraction and sophistication.

This book has been used in several undergraduate and graduate courses that I have been teaching at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The first version of the book was published in by Wiley Interscience, New York, entitled Theory of Electromagnetic Waves, which was based on my Ph.

The book was expanded and published in with the present title and its second edition appeared in The development of the various concepts in the book relies heavily on published work. I have not attempted the task of referring to all relevant publications. The list of books and journal articles in the Reference Section at the end of the book is at best representative and by no means exhaustive. Li prize for the year During the writing and preparation of the book, many people helped.

I would like to express my gratitude to them and to the students whose enthusiastic response and feedback continuously give me joy and satisfaction in teaching.
