Lumped and distributed elements as passive components are the constituting parts of almost any radio frequency and microwave circuit. In the section on lumped elements, resistors, capacitors and inductors are discussed. The Chapter goes on to look at distributed elements, design considerations, miniaturization, and quality factor.
