Acoustical systems in which the dimensions are small compared to the wavelength are vibrations in a single dimension. Electrical elements are resistance. In an electrical circuit the number of degrees of freedom is equal to the number of independent closed meshes or circuits. In a field problem there is variation in two or three dimensions. constituent parts of a circuit. mechanoacoustical or electromechanoacoustical systems. This involves acousti- electroacoustical. The number of independent variables required to completely specify is the motion of every part of a vibrating system a measure of the is number needed of degrees of freedom of the system. ^ The term "single dimension" implies that the movement or variation occurs along a path. this operational method can be applied to any analytically similar system. Electrical circuit theory is the branch of electromagnetic theory which deals with electrical oscillations in linear electrical networks. When the based upon Maxwell's dynamics the network forms a dynamical system in which the currents play the role of velocities. Of course. In the same way the coefficients in the differential equations of theory is use of the terms "circuit" and "network" in the literature is not estabThe term "circuit" is often used to designate a network with several branches. Vibrations in one dimension occur in mechanical systems made up of mechanical elements.

The Heaviside Operational Calculus

^^ '• ^

Heaviside's unextended problem is as follows: given a linear dynamical system of « degrees of freedom in a state of equilibrium, find its response when a unit force is applied at any point. The unit function, 1, depicted in Fig. 7.1, is defined to be a force which is zero for / < and unity for

The response of a dynamical system to a unit force is called the indicial admittance of the system. It is denoted by A(t). A{t) represents the current, linear velocity, angular velocity, or volume current when a unit electromotive force, force, torque or pressure is suddenly applied in a
system which was
initially at rest.

In the Heaviside calculus the differential equations are reduced to an algebraic form by replacing the operator dj dt by the operator p and the
operation / dt by 1/^.

Tables of operational formulas have been com-

piled which serve for operational calculus the
