The Chapter begins with a discussion of transmission line theory. It describes the mismatch that can occur between two TEM transmission lines which have identical characteristic impedance, but mismatched fields. When examined in terms of distributed circuit analysis, it is clear that a mismatch can occur. Transmission line theory rests on a number of assumptions which are well described by Chipman (1968), and these assumptions are considered next. The Chapter goes on to look at the L-C lattice balun, the coupled microstrip transmission line balun, the microstrip transmission line Marchand balun, and the microstrip branchline (ladder ) balun.
