Transmission Lines with Pulse Excitation aims to provide engineers with a guide to the solution of the problem on the behavior of a pulse signal on a transmission line.

The book begins with an introduction to the general equations for transmission lines and the simplest pulse, the unit step. Chapters II and III present the numerical and graphical representation of the methods of traveling waves. Chapter IV is devoted to the study of the problem on the propagation of an arbitrary pulse on an arbitrary line. The final chapter describes the behavior of a line in the sinusoidal steady state.

The text will be highly useful to radio engineers and students of engineering.
