This second edition emphasizes the fundamental concepts of Maxwell's equations, wave propagation, network analysis and design principles as applied to modern microwave engineering. Applications of microwave engineering are also changing, with increasing emphasis on commercial use of microwave technology for personal communications systems, wireless local area networks, millimeter wave collision avoidance vehicle radars, radio frequency (RF) identification tagging, direct broadcast satellite television, and many other systems related to the information infrastructure.
