Abstract:

The propagation of electromagnetic waves along open structures whose transverse cross section are composed of two symmetrically placed circular sectors is investigated. The problem is first formulated in the form of a dual summation equation. By introducing a new set of basis functions to represent the surface field, the dispersion relation for such a structure is developed, systematic techniques of finding the approximate solutions of the dispersion relation are formulated, and numerical solutions for the first two orders of approximation are carried out to illustrate the feasibility of using the technique.
