This comprehensive revision (3rd Edition) is a senior undergraduate or first-year graduate level textbook on antenna fundamentals, design, performance analysis, and measurements. In addition to its use as a formal course textbook, the book's pragmatic style and emphasis on the fundamentals make it especially useful to engineering professionals who need to grasp the essence of the subject quickly but without being mired in unnecessary detail. This new edition was prepared for a first year graduate course at Southern Polytechnic State University in Georgia. It provides broad coverage of antenna types and phenomena, for operations at very low radio frequencies, as well as frequencies up to those of submillimeter wavelengths. Most antenna textbooks are written for readers proficient with vector calculus and begin with the use of Maxwell's equations in the development of antenna theory. These books do not meet the needs of many students and engineers who, because of their backgrounds or personal interests, desire a more direct path for assimilating antenna fundamentals and their connection to application topics of antenna engineering. There are problems at the end of each chapter, and answers to the odd numbered problems are included at the end of the book. Complete answers are available for instructors who adopt the book. The appendices provide technical depth to the chapters and downloadable data files are referenced in the chapters for providing a more complete treatment of antennas. In the Deluxe Edition, a full featured copy of Mathcad 14.0 is included so readers can easily create their own computer analyses. The downloadable data files provide computer solutions in both Mathcad and MATLAB to problems in the areas that follow: Reflection coefficients for surfaces versus dielectric properties, conductivity, polarization, surface roughness, and incidence angle Earth's multipath effects on antenna patterns versus surface properties, antenna and observation heights and separation distance, and polarization for flat and spherical earth models Radiating near and far fields from arrays and continuous aperture antennas, as functions of aperture phase and amplitude distributions and random aperture errors. Key Features Complete solutions available to adopting course instructors.Retains the clarity of writing and minimum of required math and theory so that a broad range of readers will benefit.Includes a brand new chapter on Electronically Steered Arrays, so important to understanding the advances in digital technology as they apply to high-speed electronics and applications in radar and communications todayProblems and Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter for homework or self-study tests of understandingMaterial and reviews have been provided by leading antenna experts and instructors: Donald Bodnar, Ed Joy, and Andrew PetersonDownloadable Mathcad files, and MATLAB files for extended study and visualization.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
