Many antennas can be characterized by their radiation Q (the ratio of reactance to radiation resistance). A classic problem is determining the maximum possible bandwidth, constrained by the maximum permissible reflection magnitude, and the number of tuned circuits in the impedance-matching circuit. This paper presents a review on theoretical limitations of narrowband impedance matching.
