In this paper, the position-only, amplitude-only, and amplitude-phase synthesizes for the shaped-beam patterns of the linear antenna arrays have been achieved by using the clonal selection algorithm (CLONALG). The CLONALG is a relatively novel evolutionary optimization method based on the clonal selection principle of the human immune system. Numerical examples of the pencil, flat-topped, and cosecant patterns are given. Numerical results show that the CLONALG is capable of synthesizing the array patterns with a good performance both in the shaped region and in the sidelobe region.
