Bridging the gap between electric circuits and electronmagnetics, Ulaby's book leads users from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. Earlier and heavier emphasis placed upon dynamics, permits coverage of practical applications in communication systems, radar, optics and solid state computers.FEATURES/BENEFITS * NEW--Over 370 chapter-end problems. * Offers users more opportunities to practice applications, and test their understanding of chapter concepts. * NEW--Accompanying CD-ROM. * Provides readers with complete sample solutions for 45 chapter-end problems selected from and identified in the text, and enables them to generate a high-quality print of Smith Chart for use with Logical organization--Begins coverage with transmission lines. * Presents a natural bridge between familiar circuits material and new electromagnetics material. More emphasis on dynamics than statics. Unique coverage of optical fibers and imaging (Ch. 8). * Gives the reader valuable material on optical fibers in wideband communication and optical imaging by mirrors and lenses. User-friendly approach. * Explains and clarifies the physics by using math, and avoids lengthy derivations of theorems. Thorough verification of material.
