About The Author :
Electromagnetic Waves and Radiating Systems – Edward C. Jordan was born on 31 December 1910 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He did B.Sc. Degree, in 1934, and M.Sc. Degree, in 1936, in electrical engineering from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, and in 1940, he received his Ph.D. Degree from The Ohio State University, Columbus.
Jordan was a control operator at radio station CKUA for seven years from 1928 to 1935. He also worked as an electrical engineer for the International Nickel Company at Sudbury for two years from 1935 to 1937. He studied electrical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute for a year. (1940). He earned his Ph.D. Returned to Ohio State in 1941, and advanced from instructor to assistant professor and worked in the antenna laboratory from 1941 to 1945. In 1945, he married his mentor, William L. Evitt, at the University of Illinois, Urbana, where he supervised research on the discovery of antennas and radio direction.
About This Book :
One of the most read texts, this book covers the basic electromagnetic theory and its extensions to the problems of transmission, radiation and propagation of electromagnetic waves. The book presents the relationship between field and matter interactions and Maxwell’s electromagnetic theory and special relativity. Engineering applications covered are transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas (traditional elements, arrays, apertures, frequency-independent and log-periodic structures). The materials on freespace, ground wave and ionospheric diffusion meet the background essential for the communications engineer.
