I'm curious about infinitely(?) long LC Circuits. Say you have a circuit (and im going to describe this sort of like a matrix) with capacitors on the top row, inductors on the bottom row, and one inductor in each column. Assume a current with value "i" is going up through the columns. Can someone please help me understand what is going on in the system? I understand how to solve a basic LC circuit but I cant find any good examples with multiple capacitors and inductors within the same system.

----C---------C---------C----

l l

L L

l l

----L---------L---------L----

2. Relevant equations

C(series) = (1/C + 1/C +...)^-1

C(parallel) = C+C+...

L(series) = L+L+...

L(parallel) = (1/L + 1/L +...)^-1

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried looking at this as as 2 repeating series: (a capacitor and inductor in series) + (an inductor in parallel with (a capacitor and inductor in series)) but i dont think thats right...
