Text: 
Lecture notes will be posted on the web. Parts of the following books will be used: 
 Electrical Network Theory, N. Balabanian and T. Bickart, Krieger Publishing Co., 1983: Chapters 13 & 8
 Introduction to Circuit Synthesis and Design, G. Temes and J. Lapatra, McGrawHill, 1977: Chapters 79 & 12
 Electrical Networks, J. Choma, Krieger Publishing Co., 1991: Chpaters III & IX
(Note: It is not necessary to acquire these books. Most are out of print. Lecture notes will be sent to cover the material.) 
Material to be covered ( if time permits): 
 Network classification: linear/nonlinear, timevarying/invariant, active/passive, lossy/lossless, reciprocal/nonreciprocal, lumped/distributed, dynamic/memoryless, sampleddata/continuoustime networks.
Definitions useful in all discussions involving circuits.
 Networks components: R, L, C elements; ideal/perfect/real transformers; opamps; gyrators; independent/dependent sources.
Definitions useful in all discussions involving circuits.
 Network analysis: the incidence matrix; branch relations; nodal analysis; twoport parameter; multiport networks; multiport parameters; scattering relations and parameters; transfer functions; sensitivity analysis.
The basis of computeraided and paperandpencil circuit analysis.
 Network synthesis: approximation theory for continuoustime and sampleddata filters; the design of passive, active RC, GmC and switchedcapacitor filters.
The basics of active, passive and sampleddata analog filters.

MIDTERM EXAMINATION:Wednesday, Oct. 24, 10  11:10 am.
