Because there are so many methods of analysis and design and a plethora of antenna structures, applications are made to some of the most basic and practical configurations, such as linear dipoles; loops; arrays; broadband dipoles; traveling wave, broadband, and frequency independent antennas; aperture and microstrip antennas; horns, reflectors, and lens antennas. A distinguishing feature of this book is its three-dimensional graphical illustrations. In addition, there is an abundance of general graphical illustrations, design data, references, and additional problems.Read Less
New. The Third Edition of Antenna Theory is designed to meet the needs of electrical engineering and physics students at the senior undergraduate and beginning graduate levels, and those of practicing engineers as well. The text assumes that the students have a knowledge of basic undergraduate electromagnetic theory, including Maxwell`s equations and the wave equation, introductory physics, and differential and integral calculus. The third edition offers the following new material: ? A chapter on Smart Antennas, which is presently a hot topic and of current concern to antenna engineers in a number of varied application areas, ? A Fractal Antenna Section, which introduces a new class of antennas that was developed after the second edition was published? New end of chapter tables that provide a summary of important equations in the respective chapters? Additional new figures and tables to better illustrate some concepts An important new feature is the Multimedia Material which will be in a CD in the book. This CD presents: ? Power Point view graphs in color of lecture notes? Animations/applets for jmost of the chapters based on JAVA? Visualizations based on MATLAB? Computer programs with applications to topics in the various chapters Contents: -Preface. 1. Antennas. 2. Fundamental Parameters of Antennas. 3.
