Jha, RM and Bokhari, SA and Sudhakar, V and Mahapatra, PR (1989) Geodesic Splitting on General Paraboloid of Revolution And its Implications to the Surface Ray Analysis. In: Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium, 1989. AP-S. Digest, 26-30 June, San Jose,CA, Vol.1, 196-198.
The authors have observed an interesting phenomenon of geodesic splitting in the case of surface ray propagation over a general paraboloid of revolution. Since even the primary geodesics are split in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions, this leads to a doubling of the ray paths to be considered in the antenna characteristics computations. This work provides an insight in to the ray-splitting phenomenon on simplest (i.e. of lowest order) possible convex surface.
