A Note on the Double Fresnel Integral
In a recent paper Penunuri introduces the functions
~ dt and Sii(x) = JO tl/2Cii(x) = ~ t1,2 x Si(t) df
where Ci(x) and Si(x) are the Fresnel integrals. Since a substan-tial Appendix is denoted to the evaluation of these expressions, itappears that the author may have overlooked a simple deriv-ation, obtained by integration by parts, which expresses themdirectly in terms of the Fresnel integrals. The results are
Cii(x) =2x1/2C1(x) (2/7)1/2 sm x (1)Sii(x)=2xi12Sl(x) + (2/7r)1i2[cos x 1] (2)
where, following Penunuri,
JCi(x) =(1/27r)1i2 ~ dt (3)
Si(x) = (1/2T)1i2~x~ dt. (4)
Using tabulated values for Ci and Si, (1) and (2) can now bereadily evaluated.

Correction to Sensitivity Analysis of CoupledMlcrostrip Directional Couplers
S. D. SHAMASUNDARA ~ K. C. GUPTA
With reference to the above paper, the following correctionsmay be noted.
1) Equation (13) should read as
S;oy= s;~=;[&][*][m(, -m,(l-c2)],2.2) Values of sensitivity of bandwidth shown in Fig. 1 and
value of bandwidth shown in Fig. 2 are incorrect because of acomputational error. The correct results are given in Figs. 1 and2 of this communication.
3) In Table II Directivity for Ideal coupler should read In-finite.
4) Value of (A C)~,X/ c given in the ninth line of the leftcolumn on page 793 should read 0.061 and not 0.61.
