Antenna Theory and Design
Synopses & Reviews
Highly respected authors have reunited to update the well known 1981 edition which is still hailed as one of the best in its field. This edition includes recent antenna innovations and applications. It features a succinct treatment of the finite difference, time domain (FDTD) computational technique. It is also the first text to treat physical theory of diffraction (PTD).
Book News Annotation:
A text on principles and development techniques for examining and designing antenna systems. Emphasis is on basic topics and applications, and much material does not rely heavily on mathematics. Four early chapters cover fundamentals, and further chapters detail commonly used antenna elements, synthesis of arrays, and evaluation techniques. Includes chapter summaries, exercises designed to be solved using computing packages, and reference appendices of frequencies and formulas, plus short descriptions of computing packages available on a Web site. For senior undergraduates and graduate students. Assumes basic courses in electromagnetics, trigonometry, vector algebra, and calculus. This second edition is expanded to include new areas in antennas since 1981, such as microstrip, array, and aperture antennas, and advances in computational electromagnetics.
