Interconnect networks are analyzed using symbolic frequency domain analysis and an exact model of a distributed line. The analyzed network must have a tree structure and may contain transmission lines as well as other linear two-ports with specified transmission matrices. Any regular portion of the interconnect network is analyzed hierarchically with significant savings in analysis time. Numerical Laplace transform inversion is used to obtain time domain solutions. The event driven approach is adopted to reduce analysis time. Time complexity of the method depends on the regularity of the analyzed network, and can be as low as a logarithmic function of the number of elements for a hierarchically organized tree structure
