## Antenna Theory and DesignStutzman's 3rd edition of Antenna Theory andDesign provides a more pedagogical approach with a greateremphasis on computational methods. New features include additionalmodern material to make the text more exciting and relevant topracticing engineers; new chapters on systems, low-profile elementsand base station antennas; organizational changes to improveunderstanding; more details to selected important topics such asmicrostrip antennas and arrays; and expanded measurementstopic. |
