A network solution of the 1dimensional inverse problem by timedomain reflectometry, part 1
Abstract
This Part 1 of a projected 2part study initiates an indepth network study of the inverse problem for 1dimensional passive, lossless smooth dispersive nonuniform structures. The diagnostic procedure is via timedomain pulsereflectometry and rests on a new continuousdiscrete inversion formula. It is expected that this formula, when used together with the weak convergence principle described in Section V, will lead to a wellposed solution involving a coupled pair of Fredholm integral equations of the second kind.
