The lowest resonant frequencies of reentrant cylindrical cavity resonators are calculated using the method of moments to obtain upper and lower bounds. The accuracy and convergence of the results are investigated and the Q factors and shunt impedances calculated. A simple empirical assumption about the choice of basis functions leads to results that are of good accuracy and readily computed. The results obtained are compared with those of experiment and from calculations using MAFIA and Microwave Studio.
