Fields and Waves in Communication Electronics

Overview

This comprehensive revision begins with a review of static electric and magnetic fields, providing a wealth of results useful for static and time-dependent fields problems in which the size of the device is small compared with a wavelength. Some of the static results such as inductance of transmission lines calculations can be used for microwave frequencies. Familiarity with vector operations, including divergence and curl, are developed in context in the chapters on statics. Packed with useful derivations and ...

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A revised intermediate-level text on electromagnetic fields and waves. This edition adds new applications and material from growing fields such as coherent optics for communications and information processing, superconductors, integrated circuit approaches to guides, resonators, and antennas, and the use of computers to solve field and wave problems. Problems graded for difficulty and length of time to solve, are included in each chapter. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
