We have chosen to present the theoretical foundations of electromagnetic radiation by means of the plane wave spectrum method, which makes use of the two-dimensional Fourier transform. This powerful method leads to relatively simple expressions for the far-field radiation from plane apertures and from elementary dipoles. These expressions will be used in Chapters 3, 5 and 6 to study antennas in transmission, antennas of simple geometry and printed antennas.
