The use of continuation methods in the computer-aided analysis of electronic circuits is surveyed. Such methods are especially suitable when one desires to compute the solutions to a family of circuit analysis problems as a function of a continuous parameter. Applications of the concept to the location of multiple solutions to nonlinear equations, the computation of input-output characteristics for nonlinear networks, large-change sensitivity analysis, and the computation of multivariable… CONTINUE READING
