Abstract

An algorithm is developed using the Kirchhoff near-field to near-field transformation for the one-way coupling between antenna elements. This coupling representation is applied to antenna array problems to yield accurate results over a wide bandwidth. The advantages of the transform method over a full FDTD method are smaller computer storage and a reduction in late-time FDTD effects associated with reflections from the absorbing boundary on the outer surface of the computational domain and also from numerical dispersion and instabilities.
