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.

Add some SPARK to your study of ELECTRICITY
Having trouble understanding the fundamentals of electricity? Problem solved! Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, makes it shockingly easy to learn the basic concepts.
Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide begins by covering direct current (DC), voltage, resistance, circuits, cells, and batteries. The book goes on to discuss alternating current (AC), power supplies, wire, and cable. Magnetism and electromagnetic effects are also addressed. Detailed examples and concise explanations make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key concepts.
It’s a no-brainer! You’ll learn about:
- Ohm’s Law, power, and energy
- Kirchhoff’s Laws
- Electrochemical energy
- Electricity in the home
- Protecting electronic equipment
- Electromagnetic interference
- Practical magnetism
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, powers up your understanding of this essential subject.
About the Author
Stan Gibilisco has authored or co-authored more than 50 nonfiction books in the fields of electronics, general science, mathematics, and computing. He has worked as a technical writer in industry, as a shortwave radio broadcast station technician, as a radio-frequency design engineer, and as a magazine editor. One of Stan’s books, the Encyclopedia of Electronics (TAB Books, 1985), was named by the American Library Association (ALA) in its list of “Best References of the 1980s.” Another of his books, the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Personal Computing (McGraw-Hill, 1995), was named as a “Best Reference of 1996” by the ALA. Stan is considered the “father” of the DeMYSTiFieD series.
Stutzman’s 3rd edition of Antenna Theory and Design provides a more pedagogical approach with a greater emphasis on computational methods. New features include additional modern material to make the text more exciting and relevant to practicing engineers; new chapters on systems, low-profile elements and base station antennas; organizational changes to improve understanding; more details to selected important topics such as microstrip antennas and arrays; and expanded measurements topic.
Microelectronic Circuits, Sixth Edition, by Adel S. Sedra and Kenneth C. Smith This market-leading textbook continues its standard of excellence and innovation built on the solid pedagogical foundation that instructors expect from Adel S. Sedra and Kenneth C. Smith. All material in the sixth edition of Microelectronic Circuits is thoroughly updated to reflect changes in technology–CMOS technology in particular. These technological changes have shaped the book’s organization and topical coverage, making it the most current resource available for teaching tomorrow’s engineers how to analyze and design electronic circuits.
