Title: Optimal design of an inductor and inductor circuit

Abstract: A method for the design and optimization of inductors for RF circuits. This method consists in the formulation of RF circuit designs as geometric programs. The designer can specify a wide variety of specifications such as gain, bandwidth, noise, etc. The method, which was implemented in simple code, determines inductor dimensions and component values in a few seconds real-time. The results was also a globally optimal design.
