I am looking for a way to completely describe which kind of digital filters I used to process my data, although it seems only few publications in general report all the details.
I think I should describe at least
- Which type of filter was applied (low-pass, high-pass, etc).
- Cutoff frequencies
- IIR / FIR
- Phase response?
- How the filter was designed?
- Transition bands
Also, I would like to know the attenuation is reported? Sometimes it is written that attenuation was x dB per octave, how does one calculate that?
I'm using MATLAB's fdatool for filter design + command filtfilt (zero-phase) to do the filtering. Basicly I would like to cover all the selections I made.
