Ebenezer and Abraham presented an Eigen function approach to determine the response of radially polarized piezoelectric cylindrical shells of finite length subjected to electrical excitation [6].
The solution [U.sub.m] to (2.6) becomes the approximate solution in the finite dimensional subspace while [[omega].sub.j] (x) are the normalized eigen function.
Using methods developed in [5] we will estimate eigen function of first boundary value problem for the operator.
The eigen function design approach used to realize SAW filters is noniterative and the pass band shapes of the transfer functions can be manipulated easily by varying the coefficients of the eigen functions.
