Radiowave Propagation: Physics and Applications 1st Edition
Radiowave Propagation provides an overview of the physical mechanisms governing electromagnetic wave propagation in the Earth’s troposphere and ionosphere. With an accessible and student-oriented approach, this textbook explores a wide range of topics in a combination of physical and empirical descriptions. Student-approved by Ohio State University, this source presents current empirical information, helping students to strengthen their electromagnetic physics skills. Both engineers and students will find the balance of physical and empirical models provides the basic physical insight as well as practical means for the computations needed in system design.

Retaining the superb pedagogical style, the text elaborates fundamentals of signal and systems and core communication topics. It is then translated into tools that are essential to the design and analysis of digital communications. Featuring a seamless blend of mathematics and heuristics, carefully crafted examples to clarify mathematics abstraction, and new and updated MATLAB exercises, this text provides a thorough coverage of modern communication system theory and application that is easily accessible to students.
Digital Design, fifth edition is a modern update of the classic authoritative text on digital design. This book teaches the basic concepts of digital design in a clear, accessible manner. The book presents the basic tools for the design of digital circuits and provides procedures suitable for a variety of digital applications.
Here’s the sure cure for CIRCUIT PARALYSIS!
Need to learn circuit analysis but experiencing some resistance in your brain waves? No stress! Circuit Analysis Demystified will give you the jolt you need to understand this complex subject–without getting your circuits crossed.
In the first part of the book, you’ll learn the fundamentals such as voltage and current theorems, Thevenin and Norton’s theorems, op amp circuits, capacitance and inductance, and phasor analysis of circuits. Then you’ll move on to more advanced topics including Laplace transforms, three-phase circuits, filters, Bode plots, and characterization of circuit stability. Featuring end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam, this book will have you in a steady state when it comes to circuit analysis in no time at all.
This fast and easy guide offers:
- Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
- Sample equations with worked solutions
Coverage of Kirchhoff’s laws, the superposition theorem, Millman’s theorem, and delta-wye transformations
- Quizzes at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning
- A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Circuit Analysis Demystified will transform you into a master of this essential engineering subject.
