Optimization methods in electromagnetic radiation
This book considers problems of optimization arising in the design of electromagnetic radiators and receivers. The authors develop a systematic general theory that can be applied to a wide class of structures. The theory is illustrated with familiar, simple examples and indications of how the results can be applied to more complicated structures. The final chapter introduces techniques from multicriteria optimization in antenna design. The material is intended for a dual audience of mathematicians and theoretically-inclined engineers. References to both the mathematics and engineering literature help guide the reader through the necessary mathematical background.
