Abstract : The manipulation of vector quantities is unavoidable in the study of electromagnetic fields. An efficient technique is developed to simplify the evaluation of vector algebraic and differential operations by simply converting the vector operations into matrix operations. This matrix formulation is especially useful when there are mixed coordinate basis involved in the vector operations. Application to some antenna analysis problems will demonstrate the merit of the technique presented.
