-- The classic in the field for over four decades has just been updated with new topics, more numerical examples, and drill problems with answers, making independent learning a snap
-- With an emphasis on fundamentals and problem solving, this superlative text is a must-have for electrical engineers
-- New to this edition: coverage of wave polarization, transients on transmission lines, and a new chapter on parallel-plate wave guides
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Chapters 11, 12 and 13 have gone through an extensive rewrite, with out-dated material being deleted and new material being added. New topics include: wave polarization, development of the uniform plane wave, treatment of wave propagation in various media, reflection of waves at single and multiple interfaces, and at oblique incidence angles, and transients on transmission lines.
A new Chapter 14 provides an introduction to waveguides and antennas, in which the underlying physical concepts are emphasized. While the waveguide sections are all new, the antenna treatment is the same as previous editions. Chapter 14 is intended as an "advanced topics" chapter, in which the development of waveguide and antenna concepts occurs through the application of the methods learned in earlier chapters.
The book has been written with the goal of making it as easy as possible for the student to learn independently. This has been done by applying a carefully graduated scale of difficulty within each chapter and among the chapters themselves, by providing numerical examples, a large number of drill problems with answers, as well as end-of-chapter problems. All of the problems have been updated since the last edition.
The material is more than adequate for a one-semester course. Professors can omit portions of some of the chapters depending on the instructional level. Also, the more difficult material has been placed near the ends of chapters or at the end of the study of some definite phase of the subject to help bring along varying levels of students.
The book has an expanded Web site to include a downloadable version of the solutions manual, Appendix E and downloadable JPEG files of the figures.
The e-text contains PDF files of all the book chapters, as well as the Student Solutions Manual.
A new CD-ROM containing Appendix E: Answers to Selected Problems now comes packaged free with every book!!!
