The Close-Form Solution for Symmetric Butler Matrices
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 26, 167-179, 2012
Abstract
The design of a 2n×2n Butler matrix is usually based on an iterative process. In this paper, recurrence relations behind this process are found, and the close-form solutions, i.e., non-recursive functions of n, are reported. These solutions allow the direct derivation of the scattering matrix coecients of symmetric and large Butler matrices.
