  4. Abstract:
  5. In this paper, an analytical and low cost computational antenna array beamforming method in the presence of mutual coupling has been proposed. Mutual coupling effects is taken under consideration through the induced EMF method and the concept of active element pattern. After establishing the corresponding optimization problem, the desired beamformer is obtained through solving a convex optimization. At the end, the 3D arrays of half-wave dipole elements, of different geometries are compared based on the SIR criterion
