" easy to read, well–structured and to–the–point a complete collection of basic concepts, formulas, and algorithms."
Wolfgang J. R. Hoefer, Professor, University of Virginia
Gain a thorough understanding of one of the most important simulation tools in computational electromagnetics with The Transmission–Line Modeling Method: TLM, a comprehensive treatment that ranges from the basic principles to advanced formulations and applications. Written by renowned researcher Christos Christopoulos, this book covers a broad area of electromagnetics, including microwaves, antennas, radar cross–section, electromagnetic compatability, and electromagnetic heating. In addition, you will find a clear explanation of modeling principles from lumped components through one–, two, and three–dimensional complex systems. This book is ideal for electrical and electronics engineers, students, and research scientists who want a clear understanding of TLM and its applications to electromagnetic modeling, simulation, and the design of components, devices, and systems.
