The mathematics of radio engineering is the application of electromagnetic theory to radio-frequency engineering, using conceptual tools such as vector calculus and complex analysis.[1][2] Topics studied in this area include waveguides and transmission lines, the behavior of radio antennas, and the propagation of radio waves through the Earth's atmosphere. Historically, the subject played a significant role in the development of nonlinear dynamics.[3]
