    Two time-honored questions that the practitioners of Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) are frequently asked by their colleagues engaged in the design of electromagnetic systems are: (i) What is new in CEM; and (ii) What can you do to solve my problems. Their curiosity probably stems from the fact that CEM is being used more and more as a design tool for a wide variety of electromagnetic problem... View full abstract»

    The development of appropriate basis functions and their application to the solution of integral and differential equation has been a topic of continuous research for the past two decades. Hierarchial basis functions that provide h-, p-, and hp- convergence is now the state of the art. However, all these basis function spaces have been designed such that they closely rely on the definitions of the... View full abstract»

    In recent years, body-centric wireless communications have become an active area of research because of their various applications. Whereas UHF bands are subjects of great interest especially in Europe, relatively low frequency bands like HF bands have been used especially in Japan and Korea. Thus, all of the prospective frequencies are in an extremely wide range. Our target is to bring objective ... View full abstract»

    Surface and creeping waves play an important role on-body communication channels. In this paper, we explore the characteristic of the wave on the body surface relate this to the antenna type. Simple models are used to extract the attenuation exponent and evaluate capability of the practical antennas in lunching the surface wave. Both flat and cylindrical phantoms are used in the simulations and th... View full abstract»
