About the book

The need for developing technology and communication asks for the design of flexible and high capacity radiating systems in today's communication infrastructure. In this context, antenna arrays are the most ideal solution. Hence, antenna arrays and pattern shaping have been one of the priority research subjects of the science community dealing with electromagnetics from past to present. Since the technology is evolving in a continuous manner, with the increase in processor power, analytical methods have evolved into numerical methods and pattern shaping has become an optimization problem. This book aims to bring together the fundamental problems such as pattern shaping, applications of heuristic instruments, optimization of antenna parameters in conventional array systems, and state of the art temporal methods such as time modulation and frequency diversity. In this way, this book is intended to be both a road map for young researchers and a comprehensive reference source for the state of the art methods in array optimization.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
