This paper opens investigations on patch antenna and simple and deformed trapezoidal shape invariants. The simplest and the most compact the antenna is, the most efficient it is and the less it costs. When we aim for a wideband communication, we should design our antennas while taking into account many essential electromagnetic characteristics. This paper studies different patch antenna shapes based on trapezoids. Curves are explored to modify these shapes and to ameliorate the quality of wideband antennas. The moment method is used here as a technique of analyzing (MOM) electric and magnetic fields. Actually, novel invariants in the explored shapes, were underlined in this paper and orient the antenna designer to take care of their dimensions as well as these variables affects closely the bandwidth offered consequently by the designed antenna.
