The Scattering Matrix (Belevitch Approach), with Application to Broadband Matching

  • János Ladvánszky
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


Scattering matrix is a basis of our today’s microwave industry. Scattering matrix is a measure of deviation from power matching. Basic applications are also overviewed.
