Abstract : The manual contains a detailed discussion of the FORTRAN coding of the Antenna Modeling Program (AMP). Its purpose is to aid the programmer in understanding the intricacies of the Fortran coding, and it is designed as a reference manual so that the programmer can examine the function of one subroutine or common block separately. By the same token the FORTRAN list is an integral part of the manual and should be used in conjunction iwth reference to the manual. The Antenna Modeling Program is based on the thin wire electric field integral equation which relates the exciting electric field to the induced currents on some specified thin wire geometry. The integral equation is reduced to an N dimensional system of linear equations by representing the current in terms of N sinusoidal basis functions and enforcing the integral equation at N discrete points.
