The accurate two-dimensional mathematical model of radiation of the H-polarized wave from a waveguide with a corrugated flange has been developed. Grooves of arbitrary rectangular profile are symmetrically cut of about the waveguide axis. This structure can be considered as the two-dimensional model of the surface-wave antenna with a slow-wave structure having finite number of grooves. The problem of synthesis of the narrow beam width with given side lobe level has been solved with use of genetic algorithms.

The paper considers a new numerical-analytical technique for computing the cutoff wavenumbers of hollow regular waveguides having a continuous curvature of the cross-section contour or a curvature with a first kind singularity. The method is based on the boundary integral equations of the potential theory and a special parameterization of the cross-section contour. The details of the numerical implementation are illustrated by a circular waveguide and a rectangular one with rounded corners. The perturbation theory is employed to derive the analytical formulas for the cutoff wavenumbers of waveguides with piecewise linear boundaries and rounded corners. The application range of these formulas is determined.

The paper deals with a new method of solving scattering problems for double-periodic magneto-dielectric structures. This method is based on volume integro-differential equations. The specificity of this technique is that the suppression principle is applied instead of the conventional boundary conditions.

The problems of the theory for a narrow longitudinal slot cut in a wide imperfectly conducting wall of a rectangular waveguide are considered. Reflection, transmission, and radiation factors of the slot as well as ohmic losses in the waveguide walls in the vicinity of the slot are examined.

The problem of radiation of a non-symmetrical cylindrical vibrator of an arbitrary radius upon axially symmetric excitation is investigated by a rigorous method. The ground of the suggested approach is a representation of surface currents flowing on the vibrator as an expansion in basic functions of subdomains on the vibrator surface. The solution of the mentioned problem is reduced to an infinite set of algebraic equations for unknown coefficients of the current expansion with a matrix consisting of generalized impedances and voltage vector in a right part of the system. The currents flowing on the cylindrical surface were calculated and the comparison of results obtained with known ones was carried out. The formula for field calculation in far-field zone and the dependences of antenna input impedance versus frequency are given as well.

A novel method of exciting and controlling the radiation of a phased array formed by open ends of a rectangular waveguide, using a surface wave of a planar dielectric waveguide is suggested. The method enables beam-scanning while the surface wave in the array aperture changes its propagation direction.

Definition is introduced for difference basis for a hexagonal grid as a configuration of elements that ensures complete covering of a hexagonal region in a plane of spatial frequencies. The configurations having three-order symmetry and being difference bases for hexagonal grids of a prescribed (arbitrary) radius are constructed.
