Optimization techniques based on the EM-simulated responses seem to be attractive for a very large group of MW systems whose complex physics is accessible for 3-D full-wave numerical analysis. Microwave Theory Tech. Russia. They are effectively restricted to certain classes of MW systems for which suitable physical or empirical models exist (and thus make space-mapping (SM) technologies [1] applicable) and to those structures whose electromagnetic (EM) analysis takes reasonably low CPU time. This explains the motivation for the current trend of further cultivation of the SM-based optimization techniques. We compare the resulting technique with its predecessor [2] by monitoring the effects of the new OF and the CORS sampling. These examples show that the reported algorithm substantially outperforms its predecessor [2]. Yakovlev Department of Mathematical Sciences. In our previous study [2].

Our simulation environment has been developed for solving a new problem. 743–754. 48. and Lajos Nagy Department of Broadband Infocommunications and Electromagnetic Theory Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) H-1111 Budapest. 5.
