It was the purpose of this study (1) to develop a new method of network synthesis from a specified complex immittance function; and (2) to demonstrate the application of the method by means of its use in the solution of representative synthesis problems. This work deals only with the synthesis of two terminal networks containing linear, passive, lumped-constant elements, from given rational immittance functions of the complex frequency variable.

Not considered part of this work are (1) the development of the immittance function from frequency-response specifications (the approximation problem); or (2) the treatment of active, non-linear, or time varying network elements.
