The development of preliminary analog computer programs for the solution of the two dimensional electromagnetic ray path equations is discussed. A simplified form of the equations is presented. A preliminary program was used for exploratory purposes. The information so obtained was used to aid in selecting the appropriate co-ordinate system for the equations in regard to optimal analog computer operation. Circuit diagrams, typical computer output plots, and the specialized forms of the equations used at low frequencies 5 kc. and high frequencies 14 meg. are included. Author
