Abstract

In our previous works, we have presented one differential method for the efficient calculation of the modal scattering matrix of junctions in rectangular waveguides. The formalism proposed relies on the Maxwell's equations under their covariant form written in a nonorthogonal coordinate system fitted to the structure under study. On the basis of a change of variables, we show in this paper that the curvilinear method and the generalized telegraphist's method lead to the same system of coupled differential equations.
