Abstract : The analysis of a nonuniform transmission line is formulated as a one-dimensional scattering problem by transforming the transmission line equations into an integral equation. Approximate solutions of the integral equation for the input reflection coefficient of a nonuniform line terminated in an arbitrary impedance are obtained by employing the Neumann and Fredholm series expansions. Two examples in the application of these solutions are given. It is shown that the Fredholm solution leads to Orlov's synthesis formula by means of which the impedance variation of a nonuniform line can be calculated in terms of the input and output reflection coefficients.
