### How can the location of the resonant peak in RBJ's shelving filters be calculated?

I'm attempting to use the low- and high-shelf filters from robert bristow-johnson's Audio EQ Cookbook1 for a filter that will have a pronounced peak - high $Q$, with a range of up to +24dB. The goal ...

### DTFT and Eigenvalues in frequency domain

Consider an LTI system with impulse response $h[k]$. Does the frequency response $H(e^{j\Omega})$ equal the eigenvalue corresponding to an eigensignal of frequency $\Omega$? So if I convolve an ...

### Magnitude Spectrum of a Linear Chirp Signal

I am trying to understand intuitively the fft of a signal that changes in frequency in time. Suppose I have the fft of a linear chirp signal sampled at 1 kHz for 2 seconds. The instantaneous frequency ...

### Why RHP zero phase is not 180° to 90°

The asymptotic phase behavior of an RHP zero is from 0 degrees to -90°, the mirror of an LHP zero. Graphically, I'm confused about why this is the case and the phase is not from +180° to +90°. See the ...

### What is the between spatial frequency of an image and pixel size of the sensor?

In my lecture notes about the sampling of an image I've written that: Since pixels have a finite dimension the spatial frequency response is attenuated before the "ideal" Nyquist frequency ...

### Recovering DTFT from Z-transform

The relationship between the Z-transform and DTFT can be expressed like: $$H(e^{j \omega}) = H(z)|_{z = e^{j \omega}}$$ Graphically, evaluating the Z-transform on the unit circle is shown as sweeping ...

### The effect of time increment $\Delta t$, frequency resolution $\Delta f$ and Gibbs phenomenon on the amplitude of the signal in the frequency domain?

Experiment: Vibration analysis (i.e.: major concern is on transfer function or frequency response). The input is an impulse (imagine as a knocking effect or knocking force), defined as a half sine ...

### Is it possible to specify number of taps and cutoff frequency independently?

When specifying the properties of a moving average filter, is it possible to specify the number of taps and the cutoff frequency? My guess is no since taps (the number of samples in a moving average ...

### Can we choose a sampling frequency to remove unwanted noise at a specific frequency?

I am studying for my exam in signal processing. In one of the old exam papers I am told to find a sampling frequency, which will remove 80 Hz noise. The filter the exam question is based around has an ...

### How to model transfer functions using Python (without using higher level packages) and plot the magnitude and phase response?

I'm trying to model a transfer function in Python and thought I could do it by simply plotting the transfer function at many frequencies. This seemed to work for a 2nd order LPF. See the below figure. ...
