Notation and definitions of vector bonds and multiport elements are proposed. Multiport element arrays and junction arrays are introduced as well as the direct sum of vector bonds. The usefulness of these concepts is demonstrated by some examples: the lumped representation of distributed parameter systems, the representation of a 3-D mechanical system (coordinate transformations) and of a nonisothermal chemical reaction.
