Abstract:

Formulas are developed for accurate evaluation of the normalized Hallen-System matrix that arises while solving for the current distribution on a wire antenna or scatterer. The technique developed here may be generalized to other similar electromagnetic problems. The thin wire example is chosen for illustrative purposes and also for comparison with previously known representations for the matrix elements. It is observed that the present method is applicable whenever the kernel functions are analytically Fourier or Laplace transformable. Author
