In this paper, a two-stage approach is proposed for using computational electromagnetics in antenna engineering. First, stochastic optimization techniques are used in combination with approximate models. Second, line-search techniques are combined with full-wave modeling. The second stage is considered in detail; both the acceleration of the underlying field computations and the implementation of the optimization are discussed.
