A fractal array is an antenna array which holds a property called "self-similarity". This means that parts of the whole structure are similar to the whole. A recursive procedure for evaluating the impedance matrix is allowed primarily by exploiting the self-similarity. However, numerous fractal arrays are extremely complicated in structure. Therefore, for these arrays, it is extremely elaborate to formulate explicitly a recursive relation. This paper proposes a simple procedure for evaluating,
