Dual impedance and dual network are terms used in electronic network analysis. The dual of an impedance is its algebraic inverse . Note that and are the duals of each other, that is, they are reciprocal. For this reason the dual impedance is also called the inverse impedance. The dual of a network of impedances is that network whose impedance is . In the case of a network with more than one port the impedance looking into each of the ports must simultaneously be dual.
Another way of stating this is that the dual of is the admittance .
This is consistent with the definition of dual as being that circuit whose voltages and currents are interchanged since and

Famous quotes containing the word dual:
“Thee for my recitative,
Thee in the driving storm even as now, the snow, the winter-day
Thee in thy panoply, thy measurd dual throbbing and thy beat
Thy black cylindric body, golden brass and silvery steel,”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
