Paper Abstract

A network calculus suitable for the modeling of optical networks is presented. The new calculus is based on the signal flow graph theory which is used for the modeling of electrical and microwave networks. The new element in the optical network calculus is the fact that the nodal variables and the branch transmissions are two dimensional vectors and matrices respectively, rather than complex numbers. The new calculus is applied to a simple optical network as an example.
