Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design – Constantine Balanis – 2nd Edition


This introduces the fundamental principles of antenna theory and explains how to apply them to the analysis, design, and measurements of antennas. Due to the variety of of analysis and design, and the different antenna available, the applications covered in this book are made to some of the most basic and practical antenna configurations.

Provides color and gray scale figures and illustrations to better depict antenna radiation characteristics. The text contains sufficient mathematical detail to enable undergraduate and beginning graduate students in electrical engineering and to follow the flow of analysis and design. Readers should have a basic knowledge of undergraduate theory, including Maxwell’s equations and the wave equation, introductory physics, and and integral .
