Triphasic Training is the pinnacle of sports performance training. That's not hype. Cal Dietz, strength coach at the University of Minnesota, has the results to back up this claim - a Hobey Baker Award winner, two Big Ten Athletes of the Year, over 400 All-Americans, 28 Big Ten/WCHA championship teams, 7 NCAA National Team Champions, and 13 teams that finished in the top four in the nation. Over the past decade, Coach Dietz has worked with thousands of collegiate and professional athletes, incorporating the latest scientific research into developing his Triphasic Training method. His approach breaks down athletic movements into their three components - eccentric, isometric, and concentric - allowing for the continuous development of athletes, maximizing their strength, speed, and power. In this easy-to-understand book, Coach Dietz has teamed up with exercise physiologist, Ben Peterson, to explain the physiological foundations of Triphasic Training and how they can be applied to training, making athletes bigger, stronger and faster than ever before. The authors give examples of complete programs, as well as examples of how to incorporate the Triphasic method into existing programs, with descriptions on adapting it to virtually any scenario.

ELECTROMAGNETICS FOR A WIRELESS WORLD The revolution in wireless communications calls for a new focus in the electrical engineering curriculum. Stuart M. Wentworth pioneers this new approach with his new Applied Electromagnetics: Early Transmission Lines Approach. Incorporating the popular MATLAB program throughout, this book starts you off with a rock-solid foundation on such basics as static electric and magnetic fields, dynamic fields, and plane waves. It then prepares you for the new wireless world with a concerted focus on practical applications for wireless systems, transmission lines, waveguides (including optical fiber), antennas, and microwave systems. Numerous worked out examples, drill problems, and end-of-chapter problems will clarify your understanding of electromagnetics, and the many MATLAB examples and problems will ensure your mastery of the information. Intelligently designed and feature-packed, Wentworth's Applied Electromagnetics offers a rare marriage of detailed theoretical grounding and hands-on experience in harmony with today's professional practice. STUDENT COMPANION SITE Every new copy of Stuart Wentworth's Applied Electromagnetics comes with a registration code which allows access to the Student's Book Companion Site.

ABOUT THE PHOTO Passive RFID systems, consisting of readers and tags, are expected to replace barcodes as the primary means of identification, inventory, and billing of everyday items. The tags typically consist of an RFID chip placed on a flexible film containing a planar antenna. The antenna captures radiation from the reader's signal to power the tag electronics, which then responds to the reader's query. The PENI Tag (Product Emitting Numbering Identification Tag) shown, developed by the University of Pittsburgh in a team led by Professor Marlin H. Mickle, integrates the antenna with the rest of the tag electronics. RFID systems involve many electromagnetics concepts, including antennas, radiation, transmission lines, and microwave circuit components. (Photo courtesy of Marlin H. Mickle)
