This paper presents a novel method for effective computation of Sommerfeld integrals which arise in problems involving antennas or scatterers embedded in planar multilayered media. Sommerfeld integrals that need to be computed in the evaluation of spatial-domain Green's functions are often highly oscillatory and slowly decaying. For this reason, standard numerical integration methods are not efficient for such integrals, especially at millimeter waves. The main motivation of the proposed method is to compute the Sommerfeld integral tails through extrapolation and analytical integration. The approach is inherently fast and accurate. Numerical examples have been provided to validate the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed method.

Efficient analysis of phased arrays of microstrip patches using a hybrid generalized forward backward method/Green's function technique with a DFT based acceleration algorithm
Bakir, Onur; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Erturk, Vakur B.; Chou, Hsi-Tseng (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-6)
A hybrid method based on the combination of generalized forward backward method (GFBM) and Green's function for the grounded dielectric slab together with the acceleration of the combination via a discrete Fourier transform (DFT) based algorithm is developed for the efficient and accurate analysis of electromagnetic radiation/scattering from electrically large, irregularly contoured two-dimensional arrays consisting of finite number of probe-fed microstrip patches. In this method, unknown current coefficien...

Alatan, Lale; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (1999-04-01)
Derivation of the closed-form Green's functions and analytical evaluation of the method of moments (MOM) matrix entries have improved the computational efficiency of the significantly in the analysis of printed geometries. With this background in mind, an extension of this efficient numerical technique is to incorporate an optimization algorithm and to assess its potential as a computer-aided design (CAD) tool. Therefore, we have employed the Gradient search and Genetic algorithms, in conjunction with the e...
Efficient computation of the Green's function for multilayer structures with periodic dielectric gratings
Adanır, Süleyman; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Numerical analysis of periodic structures in layered media is usually accomplished by using Method of Moments which requires the formation of the impedance matrix of the structure. The construction of this impedance matrix requires the evaluation of the periodic Green’s function in layered media which is expressed as an infinite series in terms of the spectral domain Green’s function. The slow converging nature of this series make these kinds of analysis computationally expensive. Although some papers have ...
A Novel Approach for the Efficient Computation of 1-D and 2-D Summations
Karabulut, E. Pinar; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Alatan, Lale; Karan, S.; Alisan, Burak; Aksun, M. I. (2016-03-01)
A novel computational method is proposed to evaluate 1-D and 2-D summations and integrals which are relatively difficult to compute numerically. The method is based on applying a subspace algorithm to the samples of partial sums and approximating them in terms of complex exponentials. For a convergent summation, the residue of the exponential term with zero complex pole of this approximation corresponds to the result of the summation. Since the procedure requires the evaluation of relatively small number of...
Numerically efficient analysis of slot-lines in multilayer media using closed form Green's functions
Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Aksun, MI (1996-05-16)
A numerically efficient technique for the analysis of slot-line geometries in multilayer media is presented using closed-form Green's functions in the spatial domain employed in conjunction with the Method of Moments (MoM). The computed equivalent magnetic current distribution on the slot is used to determine the power radiated by the slot and the input impedance. In power calculations, the spatial domain Green's functions are approximated as a power series of radial distance, and the integrals involving th...
