From the Back Cover
"Schantz introduces time domain methods in antenna engineering and microwave techniques, which relate to ultrawideband signals in this expanded second edition. The book is delightfully illuminating, and includes well-researched historical roots of the antenna arts, that are seldom encountered in contemporary text books. Chapters are sprinkled with illustrative examples and solutions, as well as chapter-end problems meant to guide the serious student through UWB concepts. Schantz traces the antenna sciences from the early UWB beginnings of radio, through the narrow-banding and "suppressed time harmonic" era, to encompass his fresh modern electromagnetic energy flow concept, which leads to a better understanding of UWB wave interaction in a complex environment."
Dr. Kai Siwiak, CEO, TimeDerivative, Inc.
"This is quite a book. Dr. Schantz has created a monumental work on UWB antennas. It appears that he has covered in detail every conceivable topic in this area, and he has done so in a carefully thought out manner that should be ideally suited to the practitioner in the field. The required mathematics are presented in a straight forward manner as needed. And on nearly every topic, Dr. Schantz provides detailed historical background, which reveals an extra dimension too often hidden in our work. By knowing where we have come from, not only can we appreciate the geniuses who have come before us, but we can also better see where we might go."
James C. Rautio, PhD, President Sonnet Software, Inc.
"Dr. Schantz's book is an outstanding resource for engineers and academics interested in antenna engineering, as it provides remarkable insights into the physics and operation of antennas, and a thorough overview of wideband antenna engineering. The book represents a great reference for skilled antenna engineers, and an excellent starting point for graduate students and novice engineers eager to learn more about the challenges of antenna theory and engineering, and of wideband antenna operation."
Prof. Andrea Alù, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin
"Cover to cover, this updated edition is a treasure trove of theory and practice interleaved with fascinating, lively historical context; the author is a clear believer in not only going back to first principles but, when possible, going back to original sources in order to gain a fundamental understanding of the concepts. In particular, the discussion of energy is central here, which provides an insightful alternative viewpoint to antenna behavior that I have not found in other antenna texts. The reader is treated to a compelling discussion of UWB concepts and a wide range of UWB antennas, starting from radiation principles and progressing through to practical system-level considerations. As a result, this book pulls off the rare feat of being a valuable resource for both the theorist as well as the practicing engineer."
Prof. Steven Holland, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Milwaukee School of Engineering
