### Why I don't get the right PSD

I need to model a noise with a given PSD. To do this, I am starting from a white gaussian noise (WGN) and feed with the WGN a transfer function, which will act like a filter. In fact,it's easy to ...

### Consider an ideal low pass filter $H(\omega)$, and the input to this filter is the periodic square wave $x(t)$. Find the output $y(t)$

The solution to the problem is $$y(t) = 5 + \frac{20}{\pi} \sin(\pi t) + \frac{20}{3\pi} \sin(3 \pi t)$$ and to get that the solution says to find the Fourier series expansion of $x(t)$ and I am ...

### Get the discrete-time poles and zeros from continuous-time poles and zeros

How do you implement the following function: $$[Z^d, P^d, K^d] = \text{fcn} \,(Z^c, P^c, K^c),$$ where $Z^c = [z^c_m, ..., z^c_1]$, $P^c = [p^c_m, ..., p^c_1]$, and $K^c$ are zeros, poles, and gain ...

### How can I get the continuous-time transfer function coefficients (or poles and zeros) from the corresponding discrete-time TF and vice versa?

Let's say I have a continuous time transfer function which I know its numerator coefficients $(B^c = [b^c_m, ..., b^c_1, b^c_0])$ and denominator coefficients $(A^c = [a^c_m, ..., a^c_1, a^c_0])$. ...
