In order to solve the waveguide junction problem numerically, we express the fields in the guides by truncated modal expansions and construct an error function which is a measure of the mean-square error in the matching of the boundary conditions at the junction. The minimum of this error leads to a set of linear equations for the modal amplitudes. Offset rectangular waveguides with amplitude and current excitations are studied. A weighting factor which multiplies the error contribution due to the magnetic field is studied, and a criterion for its selection given.
