The theory of transmission lines is a classical topic of electrical
engineering. Recently this topic has received renewed attention and
has been a focus of considerable research. This is because the
transmisson line theory has found new and important applications in
the area of high-speed VLSI interconnects, while it has retained
its significance in the area of power transmission. In many
applications, transmission lines are connected to nonlinear
circuits. For instance, interconnects of high-speed VLSI chips can
be modelled as transmission lines loaded with nonlinear elements.
These nonlinearities may lead to many new effects such as
instability, chaos, generation of higher order harmonics, etc. The
mathematical models of transmission lines with nonlinear loads
consist of the linear partial differential equations describing the
current and voltage dynamics along the lines together with the
nonlinear boundary conditions imposed by the nonlinear loads
connected to the lines. These nonlinear boundary conditions make
the mathematical treatment very difficult. For this reason, the
analysis of transmission lines with nonlinear loads has not been
addressed adequately in the existing literature. The unique and
distinct feature of the proposed book is that it will present
systematic, comprehensive, and in-depth analysis of transmission
lines with nonlinear loads.
