Tutorial in nature, this book is based on a series of papers presented at a workshop in Japan. It constitutes the first single-volume guide to the basic methods of analyzing microstrip patch antennas, and the characteristics of rectangular, circular and arbitrarily shaped patch antennas. Supported by 273 equations, tables and illustrations this book should prove a useful tool for anyone doing applied research in antennas.
