The main objective of this book is to introduce, in a unified manner, the fundamental principles of antenna theory and to apply them to the analysis, design, and measurements of antennas. 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.

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.
