New Engineering Book “Antenna Theory and Design”
Antenna Theory and Design,
co-authored by Warren Stutzman
Antenna Theory and Design, 3rd Edition, by Warren L. Stutzman (Virginia Tech) and Gary A. Thiele (University of Dayton), has just been released.
Developed to be suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate courses, Stutzman and Thiele’s emphasis on both principles and design makes it perfect for course use and as a reference for the practicing engineer. The text provides a better pedagogical approach than competing books, placing a greater emphasis on a concise, easily understandable presentation of fundamentals and applications, as well as computational methods. This Third Edition has been completely revised. New topics have been added on antennas for personal and mobile communications and base station antennas. Coverage of systems applications of antennas, arrays, microstrips, and low-profile antennas, and antenna measurements has been updated and expanded, including more examples applied to modern applications.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
- Modern material has been added to make the book more exciting to undergraduates and more relevant to practicing engineers. In addition, a new chapter (Chapter 1) is devoted to an overview of antennas and their application with emphasis on motivating the student.
- Some organizational changes have been made to improve understanding and college course flow.
- More details have been added to selected important topics, such as microstrip antennas, and arrays.
- The topic of measurements has been expanded into a full chapter (Chapter 13).
