Description:The Latest Resource for the Study of Antenna Theory! In a discipline that has experienced vast technological changes, this text offers the most recent look at all the necessary topics. Highlights include: * New coverage of microstrip antennas provides information essential to a wide variety of practical designs of rectangular and circular patches, including computer programs. * Applications of Fourier transform (spectral) method to antenna radiation. * Updated material on moment methods, radar cross section, mutual impedances, aperture and horn antennas, compact range designs, and antenna measurements. A New Emphasis on Design! Balanis features a tremendous increase in design procedures and equations. This presents a solid solution to the challenge of meeting real-life situations faced by engineers. Computer programs contained in the book-and accompanying software-have been developed to help engineers analyze, design, and visualize the radiation characteristics of antennas.
