This book provides comprehensive coverage of fundamental antenna theory and applications. The author discusses electromagnetic radiation and antenna characteristics such as impedance, radiation patterns, polarization, gain, and efficiency. By enabling readers to fully analyze basic antennas, it gives them the background to analyze more complex antennas and for designing new ones. For completeness, a refresher chapter on vector algebra, including gradient, divergence, and curl operation is also included. Throughout, ample examples of employing the derived theory are offered with problem sets, giving the reader the opportunity to test his or her acquired knowledge.
