"This paper deals with the problem of realizing filter and delay functions by means of distributed RC devices. The method is made possible through the use of a distributed RC network which possesses rational admittance parameters. The technique of approximating transfer functions using polynomial factors that are ration in e[superscript (a square root of s] is explained. These factors are used to approximate the magnitude and phase characteristics for a low-pass filter. This filter is then realized using the admittance functions studied by Wyndrum, the "s->W" transformation, and Richard's theorem. Those factors are then used to approximate high-pass and band-pass filter characteristics. The high-pass filter is realized using a ladder of one-port URCO and URCS networks, and the band-pass filter is realized using the "cascade and stub" technique as explained by Wyndrum. Finally the use of distributed RCR networks is mentioned and the magnitude and phaseshift of two compensators are plotted"--Abstract, page ii.
