Course introduces Maxwell's equations, which underlie electromagnetic wave propagation. The properties of freely propagating plane waves are derived, as well as waves guided by structures, including various two-wire transmission lines, hollow waveguides, and dielectric waveguides. A unified treatment of wave propagation is given in terms of the transmission line representation with examples drawn from microwaves, integrated circuits and optics.
