On the distribution of current on a straight wire antenna
Abstract
An iteration scheme has been developed that is guaranteed to converge to the unique solution of the Hallen integral equation for a tubular antenna, by means of a method for the iterative solution of a Fredholm integral equation of the first kind with a positive kernel. A radically novel feature of this solution procedure is that it is valid without any restriction whatsoever on antenna dimensions. Current distribution will no longer be symmetric about the antenna midpoint.
