Optimal Array Pattern Synthesis via Matrix Weighting

Abstract

We present new array beampattern synthesis approaches via semidefinite relaxation (SDR) for arbitrary array. Compared to the conventional approaches of using weight vectors at the array output for array pattern synthesis, which we refer to as the vector weighting approaches (VWA), weight matrices are used at the array output by MWA for much improved flexibility for optimal array pattern synthesis, and globally optimal solutions can be determined efficiently due to convex optimization formulations. Numerical examples are presented to show the excellent performance of MWA.
