## Description

Basic Matrix Algebra and Transistor Circuits deals with mastering the techniques of matrix algebra for application in transistors. This book attempts to unify fundamental subjects, such as matrix algebra, four-terminal network theory, transistor equivalent circuits, and pertinent design matters.

Part I of this book focuses on basic matrix algebra of four-terminal networks, with descriptions of the different systems of matrices. This part also discusses both simple and complex network configurations and their associated transmission. This discussion is followed by the alternative methods of deriving the transmission matrix using Kirchhoff's law. Part II introduces matrix analysis of transistor circuits, and then shows in detail the three transistor configurations: common-base, common-emitter, and common collector. A step-by-step method of transmission matrices derivation for each transistor configuration is then explained. This book notes the significance of matrix algebra in dealing with amplifier problems in a variety of output network configurations. Part III focuses on several aspects of single-stage transistor ampler design. This part explains how matrix algebra can be used to derive the exact input, output impedances, and the reverse transfer properties of transistor amplifiers with full load and generator terminations. Through mathematical analysis, the book shows the accuracy of matrix analysis in transistor amplifier design.

This book is suitable for design engineers, electrical engineers, and students and practitioners of applied mathematics.
