### 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 ?

### Why do linear phase filters have symmetric impulse responses?

It was given as a fact that linear phase filters have symmetric impulse responses, but I don't see why that has to be true. Can somebody please explain or prove this?

### Downsampling lowpass filter for audio: FIR or IIR?

I'm working on a real-time audio processing project in which I have to downsample a 44.1 kHz to a yet-to-be-determined lower sampling rate essentially for reducing computational complexity. I'm ...

### Filter design with a phase delay specification?

Given a desired filter magnitude response, plus acceptable linear phase and minimum phase FIR filter approximations, how can one design a filter with the given response and a delay specification of ...

### Matlab filtfilt provides excessive transient

I observed that filtfilt suffers from an undesired behavior when I provide IIR bandpass filters having steep transition bands. Specifically, the output signal exhibits excessive transient response; ...

### Why make the phase of an FIR filter linear?

I am new to DSP and filter design. It is easy to design an FIR filter with linear phase by making the coefficient sequence symmetric. However, why make the phase linear?

### Group delay of the FIR filter

For an FIR filter, with symmetrical tap values $h[N-1-n]=h[n]$, why is the group delay $\frac{N-1}{2} T$ (where $N$ is the number of taps of the FIR filter and $T$ is the sampling time)? Why is ...

### Causality of Linear Phase Filter

If a digital LTI filter has phase response on the form $arg[H(e^{jw})] = -\alpha\omega$, what could one say about it's causality (and consequently, the causality of it's impulse response)? Also is ...

### Bandpass Fractional Delay Filter

I am designing a fractional delay filter, I found this code for lagrange FIR fractional delay filter, The fractional delay filter acts as a low pass filter, it passes low frequencies from 0 to 0.25*fs....

### How do I show an impulse response leads to a zero-phase frequency response?

I'm trying to understand how to show that with real coefficients, the phase response of a filter is 0. Here is the impulse response $h[n] = b_1d[n+1] + b_0d[n] + b_1d[n-1]$ How should I approach ...
