Radio Wave Propagation: An Introduction for the Non-Specialist

Buy
This work treats the essential elements of radio wave propagation without requiring recourse to advanced electromagnetic concepts and equations; however it provides sufficient detail to allow those concerned with wireless systems to acquire quickly a practical working knowledge of the important concepts.

The treatment commences with an analysis of how energy (and power) is conveyed in free space, taking essentially a radiative transfer approach and thus avoiding the need to understand electric and magnetic field propagation at the outset. It then examines in some detail how the proximity of the earth and the atmosphere cause the radiation travelling from a transmitter to a receiver to follow one or more of three mechanisms – the surface, sky and space waves. Most attention is given to the space wave since it is the mechanism most commonly encountered in contemporary applications.

Radio wave propagation is placed in a practical context by considering the design aspects of communications systems at microwave frequencies. That requires an understanding of noise and its importance in systems design.

The author takes the unusual step of including a fuller consideration of the electromagnetic properties of materials late in the book rather than as an introductory chapter as found in more theoretical treatments. It is placed here so that the contexts in which the knowledge of material properties is important have already been established.

The material is based on a single semester overview course suitable for later year undergraduate students in engineering or science.

Communicating Design: Developing Web Site Documentation for Design and Planning

This book, in a word, is about documentation. Sounds boring, doesn't it? Documentationthe collection of documents prepared over the course of a projectis, in many ways, the underbelly of web design. After all, documents usually appear on paper and end up sitting on a shelf where no one reads them. How cool could that be?

Cooperative Extensions of the Bayesian Game (Series on Mathematical Economics and Game Theory)
Cooperative Extensions of the Bayesian Game (Series on Mathematical Economics and Game Theory)
Our collaboration on the research area, strategic cooperative game theory with asymmetric information, started around the spring of 2000, and progressed substantially from July 2001 through September 2002 when Ichiishi was visiting Hitotsubashi University (Yamazaki's affiliation). Through innumerable discussions during this...

Foundations of Oscillator Circuit Design (Artech House Microwave Library)
Foundations of Oscillator Circuit Design (Artech House Microwave Library)

My interest in oscillators started many years ago when I was an undergraduate student and one of the laboratory experiments was the design of a Colpitts oscillator. It was amazing to see how a sinusoidal signal appeared when the power supply was turned on. What an interesting way of controlling the motion of electrons in the circuit!...
