In this paper, the algebraic modeling of the steering vector for dual-polarized real-world arrays with unknown configuration is addressed. The formalism provided by the wavefield modeling theory is extended to vector-fields such as completely polarized electromagnetic waves. In particular, compact expressions for decomposing the array steering vector in different orthonormal basis functions are proposed. Such decompositions are shown to be equivalent under mild conditions that typically hold in… Expand
