About the book

Antenna arrays play a significant role in the current and future radars and communication systems. The goal of the array pattern optimization is to efficiently determine the array parameters such as element type, element location, complex weighting (amplitude and/or phase), array size and shape, etc. that will lead to the desired radiation pattern. The shape of the desired pattern may vary widely depending on the application. This book will present recent advances in the field of array pattern optimization. It is concerned with suppressing the sidelobe level while preserving the gain of the main beam, null control to reduce the effects of interference and jamming signals, simplifying the complexity of the feeding network, reduction of the mutual coupling on the desired array pattern, 5G impact and others. Several analytical and optimization methods have been successfully used in the design of antenna arrays. Currently, there is no specific book that comprehensively deals with this important subject. Thus, it is important to collect the recent advances in this area, the challenges, and the future trends in a coherent book presentation. This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art array pattern optimization research, the main challenges, and the opportunities that occur.

What is Open Access publishing process?

Open Access publishing movement started in early 2000s, when the academic leaders from around the world participated in the formation of the Budapest Initiative. They developed recommendations for Open Access publishing process “which has worked for the past decade to provide the public with unrestricted, free access to scholarly research—much of which is publicly funded. Making the research publicly available to everyone—free of charge and without most copyright and licensing restrictions—will accelerate scientific research efforts and allow authors to reach a larger number of readers.” (reference:

IntechOpen’s co-founders, both scientists, created the company while doing research in robotics at the Vienna University. Their goals to spread the research freely “for the scientists, by the scientist’ to the rest of the world, aligned with the Open Access movement, and the company soon became the signator of the Budapest Initiative, which currently has more than 1000 supporting organizations worldwide, ranging from universities to funders.

At IntechOpen, we are excited to be working with organizations and people who care about scientific discovery, put the academic needs of scientific community first, and provide an Open Access environment where scientists can maximize their contribution to humanity. By opening access to the world’s scientific research articles and book chapters, we hope to inspire greater opportunity for collaboration, scientific discovery and progress. We gladly follow the Open Access definition: “By “open access” to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.” (reference:
