This paper gives an introductory treatment of the concept and uses of scattering methods in network problems. The scattering parameter description for linear networks is defined and the utility of this formalism for problems involving power flow in terminated networks is discussed. Examples of scattering computations for transformer 4-ports, transformerless impedance matching networks and transducers with parasitic capacitance are given. The physical realizability requirements for linear lumped networks in the frequency domain are presented in scattering terms, and some extensions to the realizability of distributed networks are briefly discussed.
