To appreciate the utility of the ∆-Y and Y-∆ transforms, the reader is invited to apply them on the Wheatstone bridge.
Fractal and Multifractal Scaling of Electrical Conduction in Random Resistor Networks
This reduced the task to finding the so c alled ‘bridge’ functional B [h(r)] (so named due to its diagrammatic similarity to the famous Wheatstone bridge) rather than the entire closure relation.
Computers and Liquid State Statistical Mechanics
Except for ‘Wheatstone bridge’ type configurations, these are also those sites which carry non-zero current if the lattice is made of a finite resistance conductor, and a potential difference is applied between A and B.
