# Analysis, Benchmarking, and Verification

Antenna and array analysis, meshing, solvers, comparison of Antenna Toolbox™ simulations with measured results

Each element in the Antenna Toolbox library has a set of analysis functions. You can use these
functions to analyze the various elements in the antenna and array library
or to analyze the antennas and arrays that you have designed using the
`design`

function. Mesh the antennas into discretized
triangles for solving analysis equations. Compare Antenna Toolbox simulations with fabricated antennas, measured results, and
technical articles.

## Types of Analysis

## Categories

- Antenna and Array Analysis

Port, surface, and field analysis; embedded pattern, pattern multiplication

- Solvers

MoM, physical optics, hybrid MoM-PO, wire basis, and FMM solvers

- Meshing

Mesh metal antennas into triangles and dielectric into tetrahedra for solving analysis equations

- Design and Tuning

Design antennas or arrays at desired frequency; add R, L, and C components to antenna feed or arbitrary locations on antenna surface

- Benchmarking and Verification
