Abstract : The paper presents a method of characterizing nport networks. It is shown that a large class of lossless nports can be characterized by sequences of stepup vectors, i.e., vectors which form successive incident voltages to the networks and which are orthonormal at the same time. As a result, lossless networks can be classified into several classes. The most interesting one is, perhaps, the stepup class which is shown to behave jointly like a unitary operator and a complete stepup operator on separate subspaces of the space of L sub 2 vectors.
