This paper discusses various types of realizability problems in electric circuit theory, with particular attention to the role of necessary and sufficient conditions. The first example is the general realization of an arbitrary driving-point impedance function discovered by Brune, together with his introduction of the use of the positive real function. Next comes the remarkable synthesis of the same problem by Bott and Duffln, with their complete elimination of all transformers. A brief survey… CONTINUE READING
