Abstract : This paper is in two parts. First, a rigorous, topological treatment is applied to the resistive n-port problem. Formulas are derived for the open-circuit impedance and short-circuit admittance matrices. Properties of these formulas are used to establish sufficient conditions for the realization of the matrices as well as a relationship between the network geometry and the ranks of the matrices. Secondly, Nambier's results are generalized to the case of an n-port with connected port structure. (Author)
