How to find lattice coefficients when k2=1?

$H(z)=1+2z^{-1}+z^{-2}$ We know the formula $a_{m-1}\;(k)=\frac{a_m\;(k)-k_m\;a_m\;(m-k)}{1-k_m\;^2}$ Here $k_2=1$ That makes $a_{m-1}\;(k)=infinity$ How to find lattice coefficients of all pole IIR ...

Lattice structure-Lattice coefficients-Sign positive or negative?

This is the question $$H(z) = \frac{1}{2 + 1.4z^{-1} + 1.8z^{-2}}$$ My professor has told that we don't need to take those 2 values as negative and instead we can take them as positives(with the ...
