Abstract:

The report examines some of the computational problems encountered in applying King and Wus three-term theory to solution of the integral equation for the current along an electrically thin center-driven cylindrical dipole antenna. According to the theory the current distribution can be approximated by the sum of three trigonometric functions, each of the three terms being multiplied by an unknown constant coefficient. Substituting this representation for the current in the integral equation results in a functional relationship between the coefficients and the variable defining position along the antenna.
