Symbolic numeric methods in microwave technology
Synthetic-numeric methods can be very instrumental in engineering and scientific research as well. We examplify this by considering the computational aspects of the analysis of a transmission line network, as occurring in micro-wave technology. We comparatively discuss the (dis)advantages of symbolic and numeric approaches for this specific problem, with emphasis on the synthetizing power of symbolically preparing programs for the production of reliable numerical results.
