Electronics and Instrumentation, Volume 35: Modulation, Resolution and Signal Processing in Radar, Sonar and Related Systems presents the practical limitations and potentialities of advanced modulation systems. This book discusses the concepts and techniques in the radar context, but they are equally essential to sonar and to a wide range of signaling and data-processing applications, including seismology, radio astronomy, and band-spread communications. Organized into 15 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the principal developments sought in pulse radar. This text then provides a discussion and analysis of a wide range of various modulation systems. Other chapters consider the intrinsic Doppler resolving power of a radar system. This book discusses as well the power illuminating a radar or sonar target that may be comprised of one or more discrete pulses. The final chapter deals with the transmitter-modulator circuits and valves. This book is a valuable resource for electronic engineers and scientists.

Gauss's law for electric fields, Gauss's law for magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and the Ampere–Maxwell law are four of the most influential equations in science. In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain-language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms. The final chapter shows how Maxwell's equations may be combined to produce the wave equation, the basis for the electromagnetic theory of light. This book is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. A website hosted by the author at contains interactive solutions to every problem in the text as well as audio podcasts to walk students through each chapter.
