After providing the fundamentals for ISAR imaging, the bookgives the detailed imaging procedures for ISAR imaging withassociated MATLAB functions and codes. To enhance the image qualityin ISAR imaging, several imaging tricks and fine-tuning proceduressuch as zero-padding and windowing are also presented. Finally,various real applications of ISAR imagery, like imaging theantenna-platform scattering, are given in a separate chapter. Forall these algorithms, MATLAB codes and figures are included. Thefinal chapter considers advanced concepts and trends in ISARimaging.

Phased Array Antennas, Second Edition is a comprehensivereference on the vastly evolving field of array antennas. TheSecond Edition continues to provide an in-depth evaluation of arrayphenomena with a new emphasis on developments that have occurred inthe field over the past decade. The book offers the same detailedcoverage of all practical and theoretical aspects of phased arraysas the first edition, but it now includes:
New chapters on array-fed reflector antennas; connected arrays;and reflect arrays and retrodirective arrays
Brand-new coverage of artificial magnetic conductors, and Bodematching limitations
A clear explanation of the common misunderstanding of scanelement pattern measurement, along with appropriate equations
In-depth coverage of finite array Gibbsian models, photonicfeeding and time delay, waveguide simulators, and beamorthogonality
The book is complemented with a multitude of original curves andtables that illustrate how particular behaviors were derived fromthe author's hundreds of programs developed over the past fortyyears. Additionally, numerous computer design algorithms andnumerical tips are included throughout the book to help aid inreaders' comprehension. Phased Array Antennas, SecondEdition is an ideal resource for antenna design engineers,radar engineers, PCS engineers, and communications engineers, orany professional who works to develop radar and telecommunicationssystems. It also serves as a valuable textbook for courses inphased array design and theory at the upper-undergraduate andgraduate levels.
The future of computational electromagnetics is changingdrastically as the new generation of computer chips evolves fromsingle-core to multi-core. The burden now falls on softwareprogrammers to revamp existing codes and add new functionality toenable computational codes to run efficiently on this newgeneration of multi-core CPUs. In this book, you'll learneverything you need to know to deal with multi-core advances inchip design by employing highly efficient parallel electromagneticcode. Focusing only on the Method of Moments (MoM), the bookcovers:

Compact multifunctional antennas are of great interest in the field of antennas and wireless communication systems, but there are few, if any, books available that fully explore the multifunctional concept. Divided into six chapters, Compact Multifunctional Antennas for Wireless Systems encompasses both the active and passive multifunctional antennas and components for microwave systems. It provides a systematic, valuable reference for antenna/microwave researchers and designers.
Beginning with such novel passive components as antenna filters, antenna packaging covers, and balun filters, the book discusses various miniaturization techniques for the multifunctional antenna systems. In addition to amplifying and oscillating antennas, the book also covers design considerations for frequency- and pattern-reconfigurable antennas. The last chapter is dedicated to the field of solar cell integrated antennas.
Inside, readers will find comprehensive chapters on:
Compact Multifunctional Antennas in Microwave Wireless Systems
Multifunctional Passive Integrated Antennas and Components
Receiving Amplifying Antennas
Solar cell integrated Antennas
Aimed at professional engineers and researchers designing compact antennas for wireless applications, Compact Multifunctional Antennas for Wireless Systems will prove to be an invaluable tool.
