Abstract : Kalman's and Howitt's equivalence transformations are applied to the canonic impedance and admittance Foster LC forms and the Cauer ladder realizations for an RC circuit. The results provide a format for transforming from one realization to another directly. Application of the Kalman transformation to second-order Brune and Bott-Duffin realizations indicates that they are not compatible, implying the incompleteness of Kalman's transformation theory. The same technique is used to show a similar incompleteness of Howitt's theory. (Author)
