Abstract

This work examines the even and odd characteristic modes of circularly distributed ad hoc array topologies with independently controlled element radiators. Fourier and Laplacian probabilistic methods are applied to derive the associated n-th order characteristic functions governing the radiation patterns of their circular topological family. Ultraspherical harmonics are then used to derive the m-th order even and odd characteristic modes for each respective topological family. Additionally, we derive a means of generating orthogonal radiation excitations using complete basis functions.
