The reflector antenna design problem requires to solve a second boundary value problem for a complicated Monge-Ampére equation, for which the traditional discretization methods fail. In this paper we reduce the problem to that of finding a minimizer or a maximizer of a linear functional subject to a linear constraint. Therefore it becomes an linear optimization problem and algorithms in linear programming apply.
