Chapter 14 discussed the propagation properties of transmission lines with particular emphasis on impedance, the reflection coefficient, and time-harmonic representation. Voltage and current were phasors and a number of properties such as the speed of propagation, wavelength, and phase and attenuation constants were used as a direct consequence of the time-harmonic nature of the waves. Much of the discussion paralleled that of propagation of plane waves in unbounded domains.
