Summary of topics for final- ee483_583_Antennas_final_review_notes.pdf

MatLab m-files for plotting radiation patterns:  

radpat.m (newer version, 4 traces max)     polarpat.m (older version, 3 traces max)

MatLab m-files for calculating directivity:  

m-file to numerically compute directivity DIRECTIVITY.m (modified for better accuracy)

Example m-file containing radiation intensity of antenna (needed by DIRECTIVITY.m) U.m
