By application of Zolotarev polynomial, a difference pattern of a monopulse array antenna and a sum (conventional) pattern of an array antenna with an even number of elements are synthesized. The resulting patterns are optimum in a Chebyshev sense for monopulse array antennas and for even element arrays with the element spacing less than a half wavelength, respectively. Design procedure for difference and sum patterns is shown by numerical calculations.
