Connected Networks

  • Paul Slepian
Part of the Springer Tracts in Natural Philosophy book series (STPHI, volume 16)


In this chapter we introduce networks and investigate their simplest geometrical properties. Our networks for the present will be divorced from all circuit theory considerations. Such a divorce allows us to examine those network properties which are independent of circuit theory considerations. Much later in the book, after our elementary machinery is firmly established, we shall introduce the complications of circuit theory into our existing elementary structures.
