From the Back Cover:

A Complete Overview of the Basic Electromagnetics, Propagation, and Signal Processing Behind Smart Antenna Design

This advanced level text and reference thoroughly details the operating principles of smart antennas and utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of this growing subject. An equal emphasis is placed on electromagnetic principles, array signal processing, random processes, channel characterization, spectral estimation, and adaptive algorithms. The author expertly relates these principles to the real world market demands of the wireless communication field -- including both military and commercial applications -- and includes valuable case studies and examples solved using MATLAB.

Rigorous smart antenna-focused coverage includes:

  • Electromagnetic basics
  • Antenna fundamentals
  • Random processes
  • Channel characterization
  • Array signal processing
  • Sidelobe cancellation
  • Angle-of-arrival estimation
  • Adaptive methodologies

Smart antennas are firmly established as one of the key technologies helping to transform the wireless market. You will find this book essential to understanding their fundamental behavior and real world application.
