### FIR Linear Phase Condition

This is the linear phase condition for FIR filters as expressed by my prof: I don't understand why $G(f)$ can be negative. Isn't the Fourier transform expressed in polar form ? So the magnitude is ...

### Constraints for Type 3 Linear Phase Filter

This might be a strange question - but most of the Type 3 LPF I'm seeing are having this in common for $h[n]$, assuming $h[n]$ is real: We cannot have outermost element of h[n] lower than middle ...

### Group Delay for Hilbert Transformer and Resulting Dispersion

An ideal Hilbert Transformer shifts the phase for all positive frequencies by $-\pi/2$ and all negative frequencies by $+\pi/2$ while maintaining constant magnitude everywhere. Group Delay is the ...

### How to Determine if FIR has a Linear_Phase Response w/o Matlab

Given the FIR transfer function: h(z) = $.36 + .384z^{-1} + .1608z^{-2} +.9712z^{-3} + .352z^{-4} + .18z^{-5} - .2z^{-6}$ How do you determine if this transfer function has a linear - phase ...

### When do you use a minimum-phase filter over a linear-phase filter

Q1) I have understood that linear-phase filters have more delay time whereas minimum phase filters implement a lesser delay time but introduce phase distortion artifacts which linear-phase filters ...

### Are the 4 types of linear phase FIR filters the only linear phase FIR filters one can come up with?

Basically my question is the same as the title: Are the 4 types of linear phase FIR filters the only linear phase FIR filters one can come up with? And if so, then why? I'm pretty sure that they are ...

### linear phase and generalised linear phase filters

I know that for linear phase filters, all frequency components have equal delay times. That is, there is no distortion of signal due to the time delay of frequencies relative to one another. However,...

### importance of symmetric windows for STFT for practical applications

I am wondering why is the linear phase property of filters with symmetric coefficients important for some practical applications of short time fourier transform, such as image processing? I have read ...

### could anybody explains me why IIR filters do not have linear phase?

Please tell me. Also I dont know why phase is linear with FIR filters. I would like quantitative analysis. And why linear phase is not achieved by IIR filters ?
