Radiation and Propagation of Electromagnetic Waves serves as a text in electrical engineering or electrophysics. The book discusses the electromagnetic theory; plane electromagnetic waves in homogenous isotropic and anisotropic media; and plane electromagnetic waves in inhomogenous stratified media. The text also describes the spectral representation of elementary electromagnetic sources; the field of a dipole in a stratified medium; and radiation in anisotropic plasma. The properties and the procedures of Green’s function method of solution, axial currents, as well as cylindrical boundaries are also considered. The book further tackles diffraction by cylindrical structures and apertures on cylindrical structures. Students taking electrical engineering or electrophysics will find the book useful.
