    A Note on the Double Fresnel Integral

    L. LEWIN

    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)

    o t/2

    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


    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.
