Abstract : Given the time domain specification for any (or any two) of the networks--the source network, the matching network, and the load network--specify the remaining network(S) so that the maximum total energy is transferred from the source to the load for arbitrary source voltages. This problem can be solved (i.e., the matching network can be specified, its realizability being an open question) in general by means of the classical calculus of veriations, which yields time domain specifications for the unknown network and simple conditions which show the limitations on the applicability of the results. The further question of when the specified matching networks can actually be realized (or to what extent they can be approximated) is included. (Author)
