Orthogonal Methods for Array Synthesis: Theory and the ORAMA Computer Tool

John N. Sahalos

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The first time that such a complete systematic analysis of the mathematical and numerical techniques related to the orthogonal methods has been given. With the explosion of the wireless world, greater emphasis than ever before is being placed on the effective design of antennas. Orthogonal Methods for Array Synthesis outlines several procedures of orthogonal methods suitable for antenna array synthesis. The book presents a simple approach to the design of antenna arrays to enable the reader to use the classical Orthogonal Method for synthesis of linear arrays. This theory-based book, which includes rapid, effective solutions to design problems for communications applications and broadcasting, is amply illustrated with real-world examples and case studies. Also included in the book is the ORAMA MS Windows-compatible computer tool, patented by Professor Sahalos and his team. Provides comprehensive coverage of the basic principles of orthogonal methods including an analytical explanation of the orthogonal method (OM) and the orthogonal perturbation method (OP) Gives rapid, cost-effective solutions to antenna design problems for communications applications and broadcasting Illustrates all theory with practical applications gleaned from the author's extensive experience in the field of orthogonal advanced methods for antennas Providing a complete guide to the theory and applications of the Orthogonal Methods, this book is a must-read for antenna engineers and graduate students of electrical and computer engineering and physics.
