Abstract : Some theorems on linear passive systems are quoted. Then two subclasses, the relaxation systems of the first and of the second kind, are defined, and various properties of them are derived. Sufficient conditions are given that a linear passive system with a stimulus which is a harmonic function for t>0 will have a response which approaches a harmonic function for t approaching infinity. Finally the representation theorems are derived for vector-valued linear passive systems. (Author)
