Abstract : Computer programs for calculating the characteristic modes of wire objects of arbitrary shape are given. A program for computing the generalized impedance matrix of wire objects is included. It is valid for systems of N wires of arbitrary shape, using triangle functions for both expansion and testing. A program for using the characteristic modes in plane-wave scattering problems, showing convergence of the modal solution, is also given. Programs for making Calcomp plots of the characteristic currents, gain patterns and modal solutions are included. This report gives program descriptions, operating instructions, listings, and sample input-output data for each program. (Author)
