I'm happy and excited to inform you that the tutorial of the next issue will be on the Physical Optics (PO) and Physical Theory of Diffraction (PTO) techniques. The tutorial will present a comprehensive analytical and numerical analysis of the diffra

The tutorials we have published in this column and the MATLAB scripts and packages we have shared with the readers have been used all around the world. We're encouraged a lot by the positive feedback we have received. I'm glad to inform you that most

Presents a quiz on shielding susceptible devices from undesired electromagnetic emissions.

Julia's rather bold comment, “A green house but a dumb one!” convinced David that the right time had come for implementing state-of-the-art intelligent-house technologies into his beloved mansion. His motto is “smart and reliable.” Leaving the intell

Provides the solution to the FPGA Quiz originally published in the February 2012 issue.

We have introduced many computer codes and virtual tools for electromagnetic modeling and simulation in the Magazine for nearly a decade. I'm very glad to see that those tools are used in several universities and institutions, even in national resear

Those of you who have already downloaded the MATLABbased ComplexGUI virtual tool, made available after the publication of its tutorial, please note that we have just prepared its Web-based version, which is ready for you at DOGUS MODSIM lab [see ibid

Dr. Hakan Partal, from Syracuse University (SU) New York, and a former PhD student of Prof. Ercument Arvas (long-time Associate Editor for Feature Articles of the Magazine), visited Doğuş University on December 29, 2010. Dr. Partal gave a presentatio

Effective teaching in engineering necessitates establishment of an intelligent balance between real and virtual experimentation, and between essentials (theory) and computer applications. Can we use FPGAs for these purposes? The next tutorial is plan

In his EM Programmer's Notebook in the June 2009 issue of the Magazine, David B. Davidson presented a paper by Edward J. Rothwell [1] on the exponential approximations of some special functions, i.e., several ordinary and modified Bessel functions, w

Levent Sevgi is this month's Editor of "Testing Ourselves." He briefly introduces this month's contribution.

Various puzzles, humorous definitions, or mathematical recreations - usually having some relevance to electrical engineering - that should engage the interest of readers.

Provides answers to the quiz in the April 2011 issue of the Magazine, prepared by Prof. P. Ya. Ufimtsev. The Quiz for this Issue: three questions are posed on web-based applications using only MATLAR and HTML.

I'm glad to receive positive feedback on the tutorial we prepared for the June issue [1]. As Ross pointed out in his editorial comments, the topic was a comprehensive tutorial and review of high-frequency asymptotic (HFA) techniques, including Physic

This article discusses preparing tutorials for a review of both the systematic method of microstrip filter design from LC circuits to transmission lines and microstrip lines, and practical design guidelines. This also includes useful computer code an

Overviews current society and chapter news and events.

Very often we witness discussions on possible adverse health effects of mobile phones in the news. Nowadays, there are many more discussions because of the Interphone study [1, 2], coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (JARC)

Five years! It's been five years since the “Testing Ourselves” column took off We started with the first quiz back in February 2007. We have had variety of quizzes and, including this issue, 29 tutorials since then. We have discussed simple but funda

The author poses six questions related to a simple linear time-invariant autonomous system, the dynamics of which is governed by a given first-order differential equation.

The tutorial in this issue is reserved for classical radar cross section (RCS) measurements. The follow-up tutorial, on software-controlled novel RCS measurement approaches, will hopefully be ready for the April 2014 issue. Brian Fisher, one of the A
