India needs design and development technology applications and communication is one of the major
areas. There is an ever-growing demand for better and better applications in defence, IoT,
communication systems with multiple input–multiple output (MIMO), exponentially growing mobile
technology, and so on. For all such applications, antenna design is intrinsic and needs a clear
understanding of antenna technology. Role and significance of antennas in communication systems is
quite prominent. Hence, a study of antennas and wave propagation is crucial. This book serves as a
basic and comprehensive textbook on antennas and wave propagation for UG and PG students of all
Indian technological universities.
