Abstract

A motion picture of the electromagnetic field pattern of a prolate spheroid antenna was completely produced by an IBM 7094 computer and an SC 4020 microfilm plotter. The technique of illustrating complex mathematical subjects by means of computer pictures should lead to better understanding in electrical engineering.
