This book is an engineer's dream: a concise approach to computing quickly and precisely the characteristic impendances of transmission lines of any configuration. Dr. Hilberg shows how the characteristic impedance formulas contained in the known tables, as well as the reflections and utilization of properties of complementary lines, can be systematically obtained from the formula of a single line. The emphasis is on speed and convenience, without sacrificing accuracy. Unique to this book is a tabular index of precise line drawings which incorporate the three different scales of wave resistance, inductance, and capacitance while the relevant mathematics are presented alongside. A gem of a book, this one is certain to become a classic reference for every serious design engineer.
