Abstract:

A discussion of a recent significant advance in network synthesis theory is presented. This breakthrough was accomplished by D. Hazony of the Case Institute of Technology and by D. C. Youla of the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, who independently of each other developed methods for unifying the theory of two-port cascade synthesis. Both methods are based on Richards theorem, and both introduce the gyrator artificually. Different methods of proof are used, however. A valuable cookbook recipe was developed by Youla. Hazony managed to extend the method to n-ports. In all, this epoch-making achievement has resulted in an important, simple, and beautiful method of network synthesis.
