A function-theoretic method, The Wiener-Hopf technique has found applications in a variety of fields, most notably in analytical studies of diffraction and scattering of waves.
The Wiener‐Hopf Method in Electromagnetics is an advanced academic book which provides a rare comprehensive treatment of the Wiener-Hopf method. Using a high level mathematical approach to complex electromagnetics problems and applications, this new book illustrates the wide range of the latest applications, including an extensive outline of the most powerful analytical tool for the solution of diffraction problems.
This book is part of the Mario Boella Series on Electromagnetism in Information and Communication (ISMB). This series offers textbooks and monographs in all areas of radio science, with a special emphasis on the applications of electromagnetism to information and communication technologies.
