Circuits, Interconnections, and Packaging for VLSI
For a derivation of transmission line equations from both a
circuits and electromagnetics perspective, try Kraus. He
develops the concept of 'field cells' that enables you to just
look at a transmission line crossection and mentally calculate
the impedance. He develops the concepts of inductance and
capacitance and gives a lot of insight into how transmission
lines operate and why. I'd recommend the classic:
John D. Kraus
McGraw-Hill, 1992, 1984, 1973, 1953.
The 1992 version is well illustrated.
