Abstract—The design of antenna arrays is one of the most challenging optimization problems in recent research interests. In this research work a new method of optimization is proposed. This method called "Characteristics Evolution Optimization" is based on parallel processing of streams of binary digits, and hence it can perform well in parallel processing digital systems. In this article, a 16 - element linear antenna array has been taken into consideration, and the performance of the proposed technique for synthesizing the radiation pattern of the array has been investigated and compared with other existing techniques, such as DE (Differential Evolution), IWO (Invasive Weed Optimization), and PSO (Particle Swarm Optimization). Various variants of Invasive Weed Optimization have been investigated as well. It has been observed that the proposed method (Characteristics Evolution optimization) outperforms the other optimization techniques significantly in different aspects.
