Definition: pertaining to an operating characteristic, a device, an electrical network or a transmission medium satisfying the superposition principle according to which, within a specified working range:

- at a specified output port, the signal resulting from an arbitrary input signal applied to a given port is such that, when the input signal is increased by a numerical factor, the output signal is also increased by the same factor.

- at a specified output port, the total signal resulting from the simultaneous application of a number of arbitrary input signals, either individually to given independent ports or collectively into one given port, is the sum of individual outputs which would be produced by the application to the same input ports of the same input signals, each acting separately

NOTE – A device with several ports may be linear only for a certain set of ports.
