AIM
To know about basic analysis and synthesis techniques used in electronics and communications.

OBJECTIVES
• To study about various network theorems and the method of application to analyse a circuit.
• To know the concept of transfer function of a network and the nature of response to external inputs.
• To synthesize a network in different forms from the transfer
function.
• To know the concept and design of frequency selective filters.
