10.For thin highly conducting wires the relationship between the current distribution, the junction, and the incident field is provided by the Hallen integral equation [see, for example, X. Aharoni, Antennae (Clarendon, Oxford, 1946), in particular pages 131–145;
10.and see also R. W. P. King, and T. T. Wu, IEEE Antennas Propag. AP‐14, 524 (1966) for lossy antennas.] Since this equation is nonlinear because of the junction characteristic, current components at frequencies other than those of the incident radiation field result. The approximation made [in Eq. (3)] is the neglect of these currents.
11.These additional currents are rigorously obtained from the Hallen integral equation referred to in Ref. 10.

14.By convention if the mixed frequency is then the order of the mixing is Here so the order of the mixing is n+1. This agrees with Refs. 4 and 6.
