Acknowledgements It is a pleasure to thank our wives Radha and Shalini, and antennaas Bhavana and Bharath for their love, care, and emotional support. Apart from the ground and sky wave propagation characteristics, the book also discusses propagation models for urban and rural environments, which are used in the design of mobile phone networks. A minimal use of mathematical physics and emphasis on conceptual understanding make it an ideal text for undergraduate students.

Each chapter is divided into sections that are independent. Teaching the antenna theory course has given us an opportunity to interact with many students. The book provides a lucid overview of electromagnetic theory and a com- prehensive introduction to various types of antennas and their radiation characteristics. Use of polynomial represen- tation of the array factor of a uniformly-spaced linear array and its pole-zero Preface vii representation on a circle diagram is explained.

Aperture Antennas Chapter 5. We sell our titles through other companies Amazon Go to Amazon website. Chapter 6 details a select set of such antennas under the title Special Antennas. Overview Description Table of contents Features. Online and Digital Products. Currently this book is not available in Flipkart. It provides a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts of the subject.

Antenna Measurements Chapter 8. Finally, Chapter 8 deals with the issues related to the propagation of radio waves. Procedures for the measure- ment of the gain, directivity, radiation pattern, etc. Schematic block diagrams of the measurement instrumentation are presented.


The editorial team at Oxford University Press India has done a commendable job in bringing out this book. Chapter 1 is essentially a review of basic electromagnetic theory. These antennas cover a wide range of applications in various frequency bands.

Antennas vary widely harisu their shapes, sizes, and radiation characteristics. In fact, it was an antenna which led Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson to their Nobel Prize winning discovery of cosmic background radiation.

Detailed explanations of special antenna types as also simplified design procedures for some of the popular antennas are included. It starts with the pattern multiplication principle and goes on to explain various pattern prop- erties using a two-element array as an example.

Antenna Characteristics Chapter 3. Keeping this fact in mind, this book emphasizes the conceptual understanding of the principles of radiation and hadish prop- agation by keeping the mathematical analysis to a minimum. The book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of antennas and wave propagation with a lucid explanation of the basic concepts and theorems. The terms used for characterizing an antenna as a receiver are also clearly explained.

Antennas and Wave Propagation

Table of contents Chapter 1. Content and Structure This book contains eight chapters which provide a comprehensive treatment of antennas and wave propagation. The radiation pattern properties and some simple design procedures are explained.

The book contains a separate chapter on antenna measurements, which introduces the practical aspects of sacgidananda characterization.

We use cookies to enhance your experience on our website. Special Antennas Chapter 7. Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given.

It includes exhaustive coverage of basic antennas, such as dipoles, loops, and slots, which provides a clear comprehension of the principles of radiation and techniques of analysis.

It also introduces the vector potential approach to the solution of the wave equation and the concept of the Hertzian dipole. A large number of solved problems are interspersed through the text to enable the student propagayion comprehensively grasp concepts and wxve applications.

Features Explains concepts clearly with the help of detailed derivations, illustrations, and worked examples Includes simple design procedures for popular antennas Includes detailed explanations on special antenna types Includes propagation issues related to modern communication systems.

A class of antennas which can be looked at as radiation from an aperture is treated safhidananda Chapter 4. Indoor and outdoor measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained. Relevant numerical problems with answers have been included as end-chapter exercises to test the understanding of the topics introduced in each chapter.

Description Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering. Antenna Arrays Chapter 6.

znd The analysis of antennas is almost invariably concomitant with the study of the basic concepts of the propagation of electromagnetic waves through various propagation media and the discontinuities encoun- tered in the path of propagation.

The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns.

We would like to thank him for his kind gesture. We would like to prpagation our gratitude for the excellent editing, graphics, and design of the book.
