The thinning techniques arrange the elements in a fractal pattern to investigate the usefulness of fractal array designs. The advantage of fractal arrays is that the self-similarity in their geometrical structure may be exploited to develop algorithms for rapid computation of radiation patterns. These algorithms are based on convenient product representations for the array factors. Results for both the Cantor linear array and the Sierpinski carpet planar array are presented.
