Abstract : The principal objectives of this program are to develop and apply a generalized theory of coupled modes of propagation to the sudy of interactions in distributed microwave devices. The results of these studies should not only provide a deeper undestanding of devices currently being used or proposed but may lead to the discovery of new interation phenomena and provide a basis for the invention of new devices. The areas of specific interest are: (1) topological diagramming methods; (2) simultaneous coupling of more than two modes in a uniform system; and () nonuniform systems. The third is an area within the general directive of developing a unified coupled mode theory. Very little is known about the effects of non-uniform coupling. The analytic problems are formidable and only a few cases are soluble in the practical sense by the usual methods. (Author)
