Abstract : A sensitivity theorem by R. M. Cohn states that for linear resistive circuits the ratio of a fractional change in the d.c. input resistance to a fractional change in an internal resistance is equal to the square of the ratio of the current through that internal resistance to the d.c. input current. The theorem is extended to show the sensitivity of input impedance to changes in internal impedances for an arbitrary network at all frequencies. Equations are developed which show the relation between sensitivities and instantaneous power in the frequency domain. An extension to the time domain makes digital computer solutions possible.
