Reflector antennas are widely used in the microwave and millimeter wavelength domain. Radio astronomers have developed techniques of calibration of large antennas with radio astronomical methods. These have not been comprehensively described. This text aims to fill this gap. The Paraboloidal Reflector Antenna in Radio Astronomy and Communication: Theory and Practice takes a practical approach to the characterization of antennas. All calculations and results in the form of tables and figures have been made with Mathematica by Wolfram Research. The reader can use the procedures for the implementation of his/her own input data.
From the reviews: "The book is physically attractive. Many of the radio telescopes under discussion are pictured in full color ! . Mathematica routines used to compute the examples, and a CD-ROM with the routines ! accompanies the book. ! Overall, Baars's text is a valuable addition to the literature on large reflector antennas. As an encyclopedia of modern, very large paraboloidal antennas, it has no equal, and the existing state of the art is well documented therein. ! I believe it will become a standard reference." (George Swenson, Physics Today, July, 2008)
