1 ECE201 Linear Circuit Analysis I Lecture 10. Topics: Superposition and Linearity 1. Mathematical definition of linearity linearity = proportionality + superposition For function f(u) = y input output Proportionality: f( α u) = α y ( α : scalar) Superposition: f(u 1 + u 2 ) = f(u 1 ) + f(u 2 ) Linearity: f( α u 1 + β u 2 ) = α f(u 1 ) + β f(u 2 ) ( α ⋅ β : scalers) Obviously, linearity can be extended to multiple inputs. 2. Linear resistive circuit General linear relationship: sn n s sm m s i i v v y β α + + + + + = 1 1 1 1 scalers) : , ( 1 1 n m What does α 1 v s1 mean? • Output due to v s1 alone; and • Output when v s2 … v sm , i s1 … is sn are “dead” Linear Circuit containing no indep. sources
