For the original paper see ibid., vol. 45, no. 5, p. 569-579 (1997). The aforementioned paper presents two equivalent models compatible with SPICE for multiconductor transmission lines that permit one to analyze the time-domain response of these type of structures. One model employs a Thevenin equivalent circuit and the other model is based on a hybrid model. Both models use mode decoupling in the frequency and contain controlled sources in the Laplace-transform domain. This technique allows one to handle lossy lines with frequency-dependent parameters. Here the commenters point out a misprint that they have detected in Djordjevic's paper. In reply the author expresses thanks for the pointing out of the error.
