CPW.random(n_ports=1, reciprocal=False, matched=False, symmetric=False, **kwargs)

Complex random network.

Creates a n-port network whose s-matrix is filled with random complex numbers. Optionally, result can be matched or reciprocal.

  • n_ports (int) – number of ports.

  • reciprocal (bool) – makes s-matrix symmetric ($S_{mn} = S_{nm}$)

  • symmetric (bool) – makes s-matrix diagonal have single value ($S_{mm}=S_{nn}$)

  • matched (bool) – makes diagonals of s-matrix zero

  • **kwargs (passed to Network) – initializer


result – the network

Return type:

Network object
