Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Dec 3, 2012 - Technology & Engineering - 1136 pages
The discipline of antenna theory has experienced vast technological changes. In response, Constantine Balanis has updated his classic text, Antenna Theory, offering the most recent look at all the necessary topics. New material includes smart antennas and fractal antennas, along with the latest applications in wireless communications. Multimedia material on an accompanying CD presents PowerPoint viewgraphs of lecture notes, interactive review questions, Java animations and applets, and MATLAB features. Like the previous editions, Antenna Theory, Third Edition meets the needs of electrical engineering and physics students at the senior undergraduate and beginning graduate levels, and those of practicing engineers as well. It is a benchmark text for mastering the latest theory in the subject, and for better understanding the technological applications.

An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.

An awesome book that covers wide range of topics in concerns to antennas and wave propagation. Its according to me is the bible for a person who wants to do research in antennas (microwave antennas to be more specific).
