A Review and Mathematical Treatment of Infinity on the Smith Chart, 3D Smith Chart and Hyperbolic Smith Chart

This work describes the geometry behind the Smith chart, recent 3D Smith chart tool and previously reported conceptual Hyperbolic Smith chart. We present the geometrical properties of the transformations used in creating them by means of inversive geometry and basic non-Euclidean geometry. The beauty and simplicity of this perspective are complementary to the classical way in which the Smith chart is taught in the electrical engineering community by providing a visual insight that can lead to new developments. Further we extend our previous work where we have just drawn the conceptual hyperbolic Smith chart by providing the equations for its generation and introducing additional properties.
