    Antennas are an important component of every communication systems, including radio, television, satellite, radar, and cellular networks which transmits and receive radio waves over the wireless channel. The field of antenna is quite vast, and with the current development in the wireless technologies enormous amount of work and effort has been put in the design, analysis, and applications of antennas. As an individual a reader has to put a lot of effort to understand the modern antenna analysis and design for various applications. Therefore, the editors and authors of this book have come-up with an idea of putting all the necessary information required at one centralized place in the form of a book. The readers of this book will be able to access all the necessary information of antennas, from basic to advanced, theory to practical and its modern applications. The text provides information on antenna design for next generation communication systems and IoT applications, followed by the integration of the antennas in the wireless system, and also covers multi-input and multi-output (MIMO) antennas, metasurface antennas, reconfigurable antennas, fractal antennas and design of beamforming networks.

    This book:

    • Focuses on modern antennas for 5G communication systems and next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) networks.
    • Highlights fractal radiator-based printed linear antenna arrays designed for direct broadcast satellite applications with a particular focus on direct-to home (DTH) services.  
    • Covers the implementation of modern swarm intelligence optimization techniques for antenna array pattern synthesis.                        
    • Includes general framework for the design and optimization of metasurface antennas.
    • Presents design and development of high gain millimetre wave beam switching antennas using passive frequency selective surfaces (FSS).

    This book can also serve as a valuable reference for undergraduate, post-graduate students, as well as researchers working in radio frequency (RF) and microwave.
