  • Author: Andrei Grebennikov
The appearance of this paper was motivated by the result of an excellent opportunity granted by IEEE to look online at old journals and proceedings including the Proceedings of IRE in particular. From my previous experience I know that the new results very often can be the well-forgotten ones, and sometimes those who were pioneering the technical ideas are undeservedly passed over, especially if it was almost a century ago. In some cases, due to the difficulties with accessing the particular periodical publications, especially in different languages, the results are simply unknown. But it is always interesting to know how, where, and when this or that technical idea could firstly appear.
