Abstract--A class of array optimization problems is considered i n which we seek to optimize the array response in a specified angular sector. The optimization of array directivity is shown to be a special limiting case of these problems as the width of the specified angular sector approaches zero. The optimum array patterns are also shown to be related to the well-known prolate-spheroidal functions.

we seek to maximize (or minimize) the array response in a specified angular section. The maximization would lead t o an array design thattends to concentratethe largest possible fraction of the total radiated (or received) energy in a specific angular region. The minimization, on the other hand, is likely to yield the formation of an effective response minimum in the specified angular sector. Themethodproposedhere essentiallygeneralizes the directivity optimization technique [ 1 ] -[ 3 ] to incorporate optimization of the array gain over an angular sector, thus yielding a diwhole family of solutions. In fact it is shown here that the rectivity optimum solution becomes a special limiting case of the new family when the width of the specified angular sector approaches zero. The resulting solutions are shown to be related to an important family of functions, for the case of linear [4] . arrays, viz., the prolate spheroidal functions

Using the terminology of the continuous case, we call the radiation patterns,{Fi(u)} of linear arrays corresponding to the eigenvectors {w,,'} (as these two are related by the discrete Fourier transform), the discrete prolate functions. The weighting coefficients (or the Fourier coefficients of the Fz{u)) will following orthogonality relabe called prolate sequences. tions, similar to the corresponding continuous results 141, can be easily proved for these discrete functions:

For reasons of computational simplicity, the examples considered here are thoseof linear arrays with h/2 spacing. Results for other lineararrays or for other array geometries can be similarly obtained with some added complexity of computations.

Abstract-Chebyshev-sense equi-ripple response zeros for uniformly sampled antenna and digital-filter apertures may be obtained through means of a simple geometrical construction.

The zeros of appropriately scaled Chebyshev polynomials may be mapped onto the z-plane unit circle by means of the geometrical constructions illustrated in Fig. 1 121, [ 3 1 .

is clearly seen that E,, has a direct bearing on the beamwidth of the radiation pattern and, therefore, can be regarded a beamas shapingparameter. The relationship is more clearly brought out in Fig. 2 which shows the maximum power concentration ratio a,,, with eo. It is interesting to observe from Fig. 1, that for small values of e o , we approach the well-known optimum directivity solution [ 21 obtained in this case, by a uniform, cophasal array. This is, of course, as expected and clearly illustrates that the present approach essentially generalizes and imbeds the optimumdirectivitysolutioninto a broader class ofoptimum solutions.
