An important contribution to the literature that introduces powerful new methods for modeling and simulating radio wave propagation
A thorough understanding of electromagnetic wave propagation is fundamental to the development of sophisticated communication and detection technologies. The powerful numerical methods described in this book represent a major step forward in our ability to accurately model electromagnetic wave propagation in order to establish and maintain reliable communication links, to detect targets in radar systems, and to maintain robust mobile phone and broadcasting networks.
The first new book on guided wave propagation modeling and simulation to appear in nearly two decades, Radio Wave Propagation and Parabolic Equation Modeling addresses the fundamentals of electromagnetic wave propagation generally, with a specific focus on radio wave propagation through various media. The authors explore an array of new applications, and detail various virtual electromagnetic tools for solving several frequent electromagnetic propagation problems. All of the methods described are presented within the context of real-world scenarios typifying the differing effects of various environments on radio-wave propagation. This valuable text:
Addresses groundwave and surface wave propagation
Explains radar applications in terms of parabolic equation modeling and simulation approaches
Introduces several simple and sophisticated MATLAB scripts
Teaches applications that work with a wide range of electromagnetic, acoustic and optical wave propagation modeling
Presents the material in a quick-reference format ideal for busy researchers and engineers
Radio Wave Propagation and Parabolic Equation Modeling is a critical resource forelectrical, electronics, communication, and computer engineers working on industrial and military applications that rely on the directed propagation of radio waves. It is also a useful reference for advanced engineering students and academic researchers.
