About the author (2002)

Mac E. Van Valkenburg (Ph.D., Stanford University, 1952) was Grainger Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Illinois from 1982 until his retirement in 1988. He was a member of the Dean's Advisory Board at Purdue University, the Advisory Board at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the Board of Directors of Engineering Information, Inc. In addition to serving as Vice President for IEEE publication activities in 1970 and 1971, Dr. Van Valkenburg was editor of the Proceedings of the IEEE and the IEEE Transactions on Circuit Theory, as well as editor-in-chief of the IEEE Press. Of the many distinguished books he has written, his first, Network Analysis, sold nearly a million copies.
