This paper presents a new method based on adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) to calculate the input resistance of circular microstrip patch antennas. The ANFIS is a fuzzy inference system (FIS) implemented in the framework of an adaptive fuzzy neural network. It combines the explicit knowledge representation of FIS with learning power of neural networks. A hybrid learning algorithm based on the least square approach and the backpropagation algorithm is used to optimize the parameters of ANFIS. The input resistance results predicted by ANFIS are in excellent agreement with the experimental results reported elsewhere.
