The information is organized into two major sections. The first section encompasses 13 chapters and the last section summarizes the applicable mathematics, symbols, and physical constants. Most articles include three important and useful categories: defining terms, references, and further information. Defining terms are key definitions and the first occurrence of each term defined is indicated in boldface in the text. The definitions of these terms are summarized as a list at the end of each chapter or article. The references provide a list of useful books and articles for follow-up reading. Finally, further information provides some general and useful sources of additional information on the topic.

Numerous avenues of access to information are provided. A complete table of contents is presented at the front of the book. In addition, an individual table of contents precedes both sections. Finally, each chapter begins with its own table of contents. The reader should look over these tables of contents to become familiar with the structure, organization, and content of the book. For example, see Section I: Communications, then Chapter 1: Broadcasting, and then Chapter 1.1: Modulation and Demodulation. This tree-and-branch table of contents enables the reader to move up the tree to locate information on the topic of interest. Two indexes have been compiled to provide multiple means of accessing information: the subject index and index of contributing authors. The subject index can also be used to locate key definitions. The page on which the definition appears for each key (defining) term is clearly identified in the subject index. The Electrical Engineering Handbook, 3rd Edition is designed to provide answers to most inquiries and direct the inquirer to further sources and references. We hope that this handbook will be referred to often and that informational requirements will be satisfied effectively.
