The thesis considers the analysis and design of lumped linear networks composed of two-pole subcircuits, or resonators, in various interconnections. The physical systems suitable for building frequency sensitive networks, namely crystals and active RC circuits, lend themselves to characterization as resonators. The crystals do so intrinsically, and the active RC system is convenient for resonators because circuits with more than a pair of poles exhibit excessive sensitivity to parameter variations. The first part of the work examines one-ports or driving point functions, and have a section on synthesis in complex frequency and a section on approximation of a specified real frequency magnitude characteristic. Examples of both types of design are given and discussed. The second part of the work treats two-port transfer functions and, again, is divided into synthesis in complex frequency and approximation in real frequency. The synthesis structure used is an active lattice and offers complete synthesis for functions having no poles at infinity. The approximation system makes use of the same lattice structure and is capable of simultaneous approximation in gain and phase to a specified set of characteristics. Again, examples of both systems are given. A particular active RC resonator design is evaluated for transfer function synthesis, and is found effective. One configuration serves for all parameter combinations, so that the design would serve as a building block for active synthesis. The techniques of this dissertation are sufficient to lead to design of the practical network types having one or two ports. Author
