Abstract : A rectangular transfer matrix is developed for the n-port (n greater than or equal to 2) network. Considered is a device so used that a p-port is tr nsformed into a q-port (p plus q equal to n). Its rectangular transfer matrix has all the interconnection properties of usual transfer matrices, providing the matrices multiplied are conformable (this can also be expressed in circuit term ). Standard tests for reciprocity and losslessness are shown to be applicable to the generalized transfer matrix. Finally, a new condition (for circuit theory) is given for pure gyrator networks.
