Abstract : The range of effectiveness of a Quadratron when it is used as a square-root element can be extended with the addition of compensating series and parallel resistors. The report explains how to find optimum circuit parameters by using curve fitting techniques on the digital computer. The Chebyshev norm and the least squares norm are used to obtain a best approximation. Several cases were tested for a set of five Quadratrons and the results were excellent. (Author)
