Hey, did you ever take any classes w/ Guillemin's being the instructor? He gets referenced all over the place on network & filter synthesis books/papers. I have three of his books, although I don't have time to go through them.
I was surprised they keep this stuff too, but the Brune synthesis and "positive real functions as physically realizable" is famous in the synthesis cult. laughs
if I ever get any spare time (running around like headless chicken at the moment) I can scan Fosters paper; email me off-line (Im sure you can figure out my email addy) and I'll send you the scans. Bodes book is about 700 pages :( perhaps you means Blacks paper
Well alright. Maybe he was a leftist weenie, anyway. Poles are on the left, I know that much; zeros can be found everywhere.
I don't see anything wrong with the number 1. All the background work in analog filter synthesis is R=1, w=1, and via a LP prototype. Everyone does it that way ,(normalized & LP) and then simply transform/ scale it.
Just cuz you hate small integers, your torture test is to synthesize the simple impedance:
Z(s) = (s*(s + 1/2))/(s^2 + 1/6)
I wonder if that is the same Lee that did the statistical comm theory stuff. I think there was a Lee at MIT right about that time.
I was thinking about getting this:
Yeah, it is a who's who list. I wonder if he got a good job after graduation. Guillemin dedicated _Synthesis of Passive Networks_ to Brune.
