Abstract
The implications of the Lorentz reciprocity theorem for a scatterer connected to waveguides with arbitrary modes, including degenerate, evanescent, and complex modes, are discussed. In general it turns out that a matrix CS is symmetric, where C is the matrix of generalized orthogonality coefficients and S is the scattering matrix. Examples are given, including a scatterer surrounded by waveguides or free space, and discontinuities of waveguides.
