    Structure functions are apparently unfamiliar to most engineers and the unifying role they play in oscillator instability theory has largely gone unrecognized. This paper introduces and places into perspective the role which Kolmogorov structure functions have in theory. It is demonstrated that the rms fractional frequency deviation (phase accumulation) introduced by Cutler and Searle is related t... View full abstract»

    The theory and recent applications of waves in periodic structures are reviewed. Both the Floquet and coupled waves approach are analyzed in some detail. The theoretical part of the paper includes wave propagation in unbounded and bounded active or passive periodic media, wave scatterring from periodic boundaries, source radiation (dipole, Cerenkov, transition, and Smith-Purcell) in-periodic media...

  • Electric arc power collection for high-speed trains

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):1699 - 1715

    One of the many problems in high-speed ground transportation is supplying the necessary power to the vehicle, as on-board power generation is not attractive due to the rapid increase in the power requirement with speed. Power collection with a sliding pantograph becomes increasingly difficult as train speed increases. Alternative methods of contactless power collection are critically reviewed in t...

    Binary sequences of length n = 2m- 1 whose autocorrelation function is either 1 or -1/n have been known for a long time, and are called pseudo-random (or PN) sequences, or maximal-length shift-register sequences. Two-dimensional arrays of area n = 2lm- 1 with the same property have rcently been found by several authors. This paper gives a simple description of such sequences ... View full abstract»

  • Uniqueness of solutions to Suchy's ray equations for absorbing media

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):1731 - 1732
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (232 KB)

    The extension of the ray equations to include absorbing media depends on the definition of the relevant group velocity. A method by Suchy has been condemned to be nonunique. It is the purpose of this note to clarify this point. View full abstract»

    The application of quasi-static techniques in the characterization of microstrip is very important in the overall development of integrated circuits. Various analytical and numerical methods have been used to calculate the static potential, the capacitance, and/or the characteristic impedance of a microstrip structure. In this letter, a simple formulation is presented for the computation of static... View full abstract»

    The resistance value of a particular example of a class of two-dimensional inhomogeneous conductors introduced by Goldner [1] was given in [2]. Current density of the same example can also be obtained using the properties in a quadrilateral region framed by join-ins two right-angled triangles. View full abstract»

    The design of optimal digital fiters to minimize the mean-square error is well known and can be obtained by solving [Sud(z)/Su-(z)]+/Su+(z). However, the decomposition of [.]+ by partial fraction expansion, unlike the analog case, may not yield the optimal filter. In this letter, this problem is discussed. View full abstract»

  • Field-dependent light scattering in nematic liquid crystals

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):1737 - 1738
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    The thermal fluctuations in the long-range order of the liquid crystal molecules scatter light strongly. Equations that predict the strength of light scattering under an applied electric field age presented. The field can either decrease or increase the scattering over a large range. The effects of polarization and the direction of light incidence are also considered. View full abstract»
