For this section, we assume that networks are linear and time invariant. Time invariant signifies that the network is constant with time. Linear signifies the output is a linear function of the input. Doubling the input driving function doubles the resultant output. The network may be uniquely defined by a set of linear equations relating port voltages and currents.
