About The Book

This text is the classic work in Antenna Theory and Design and is just as relevant to the field today as it was when first published in 1981. It provides an analytic treatment, with supporting experimental evidence, of the major topics of concern to antenna designers. This is a broad-ranging text that covers most of the relevant topics in antenna theory providing fundamental methods of analysis that can be used to predict the electromagnetic behavior of nearly everything that radiates.

This stress on the fundamentals is what makes the text valuable twenty-one years after its first publication. It not only presents the theory, but goes on to show very insightful examples of its application to real design problems.

About The Author

Robert S. Elliott received a BS from Columbia University and an MS and PhD from University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and later served as the first department chairman of UCLA. He was the first person to hold the Hughes Distinguished Chair in Electromagnetics at UCLA and was the recipient of the APS Distinguished Achievement Award in 1988, as well as a half-dozen Best Teacher Awards, two Best Paper Awards from the IEEE, election to Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Xi, the New York Academy of Sciences, and the National Academy of Engineering. He became a Fellow of the IEEE in 1961 and in 2000 received an IEEE Third Millennium Medal. Dr. Elliott is also the author of Electromagnetics.
