Abstract : It is shown that the performance of a two-dimensional receiving antenna may be improved by proper processing of the out-put signals from the antenna. The mathematical technique employed in this processing is the analytic continuation of entire functions. A principal feature of the technique is that it is linear so that the resulting antenna system can be used to receive coherent signals without nonlinear distortions. (Author)
