"Considerable work has been done on the theory and development of the distributed RC network which is a special case of the general distributed network type of transmission line.
Sir William Thompson analyzed telegraph cables, assuming the RC line as a model. Oliver Heaviside made numerous contributions to transmission line theory. The solution of a two-wire transmission line with constant parameters R and C is obtainable by direct solution of the telegraphist's equations which are developed from the equivalent circuit of an incremental length of the network. The sinusoidal steady-state solutions of certain tapered RC lines have been exhibited. The exact and numerical analyses of RC lines have also been exhibited.
The general line has per unit length parameters of resistance R, inductance L, capacitance c, and leakage conductance G. If R and G are negligible, a distributed lossless network results. In this thesis, lossless tapered lines that have identical taper functions for L and C are considered. The uniform LC line is just a special case of this tapered transmission line"--Introduction, page 1.
