Summary: 
Invention and development of the Yagi-Uda antenna, and the self-complementary antenna are described. Analysis methods of large loop antennas and the improved circuit theory (ICT) for design of linear antennas are presented. Recent developments of axial mode helical antennas and spiral antennas for radiating circularly polarized waves are also described.
