Book description
An important resource that examines the physical aspects of wireless communications based on mathematical and physical evidence
The Physics and Mathematics of Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Cellular Wireless Communicationdescribes the electromagnetic principles for designing a cellular wireless system and includes the subtle electromagnetic principles that are often overlooked in designing such a system. This important text explores both the physics and mathematical concepts used in deploying antennas for transmission and reception of electromagnetic signals and examines how to select the proper methodology from a wide range of scenarios.
In this muchneeded guide, the authors—noted experts in the field—explore the principle of electromagnetics as developed through the Maxwellian principles and describe the properties of an antenna in the frequency domain. The text also includes a review of the characterization of propagation path loss in a cellular wireless environment and examines ultrawideband antennas and the mechanisms of broadband transmission of both power and information. This important resource:
 Includes a discussion of the shortcomings of a MIMO system from both theoretical and practical aspects
 Demonstrates how to deploy base station antennas with better efficiency
 Validates the principle and the theoretical analysis of electromagnetic propagation in cellular wireless communication
 Contains results of experiments that are solidly grounded in mathematics and physics
Written for engineers, researchers, and educators who are or plan to work in the field, The Physics and Mathematics of Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Cellular Wireless Communicationoffers an essential resource for understanding the principles underpinning wireless communications.
