I am doing work on Microwave transitions; I need help in preparing my thesis report which is titled “Stripline to Microstrip transition using Multilayer boards”. This is a NASA technical paper. You can Google this to know more. I would also like why there is so less information available about transitions, So far, I know, only one book “Microwave Transition Design by Izadian”, this is the only book which deals with transitions very thoroughly and gives sufficient mathematical report. I am in India and my library does not have this book, Also the book is itself very costly and we don’t have any Indian edition, Can anyone suggest whether there is any alternative to this book ? Is there is no alternative available, Can anyone suggest me whether this book is available in any library in Bangalore? Is it also possible for anyone to upload their project report?

Dude, I looked through the IEEE publications (my company has a subscription), and there is nothing there for you in terms of equations. There are about a dozen papers with microstrip to stripline transitions but they only present the results of the works, and cite references like the "Microwave Transition Design" by Izadian that you mention.

Unfortunately it looks like you are going to have to pay the $107 from Amazon. ... 0890062358

Have you tried contacting the author? Maybe he'd be willing to help you with your project.
