Abstract

"A numerical iterative design technique is presented for the synthesis of lossless non-uniform transmission lines. A variational approach is used to minimize an error functional to which the system and boundary equality constraints have been adjoined by Lagrangian multipliers. The resultant network optimization conditions lead to an iterative scheme requiring analysis of the non-uniform line, analysis of an adjoint system and calculation of the error gradient in parameter space. A steepest descent procedure is used to optimize parameter values. Finite difference equations are used to provide an approximation model for implementation on the digital computer. A design example and a fortran computer program are provided"--Abstract, page ii.
