Plane-Wave Scattering-Matrix Theory of Antennas and Antenna-Antenna Interactions

Description: From Abstract: "This monograph is distinguished by the use of plane-wave spectra for the representation of fields in space and by the consideration of antenna-antenna (antenna-scatterer) interactions at arbitrary separation distances." From Preface: "The primary objective of this monograph is to facilitate the critical acceptance and proper application of antenna and field measurement techniques deriving more or less directly from the plane-wave scattering matrix (PWSM) theory of antennas and antenna-antenna interactions. A second objective is to present some recent and some new theoretical results based on this theory."
