One of the most widely-read books in its second edition, this book includes basic electromagnetic theory and its extension to problems of transmission, radiation and propagation of electromagnetic waves. The book is updated to include the interaction of fields and matter and the relationship between Maxwell's electromagnetic theory and Special Relativity. Engineering applications covered are transmission lines, wave-guides and antennas (conventional elements, arrays, apertures, frequency-independent and log-periodic structures). Material on freespace, ground-wave and ionospheric propagation completes the background essential for the communication engineer.
