### Z-transform of a downsampler

In this paper or multirate filtering, the author establishes the following mathematical relationship. Let $y_D$ be the output of a downsampler such that $$y_D[n] = x[Mn]$$ where $M$ is the ...

### Finding the z-transform of $h[n] = a^n\cos(2\pi \frac{n}{F_s}f_0)$ for $n ≥ 0$ and zero for $n < 0$

So I'm trying to decide whether the cosine part is intended to be plugged in for $z$ or whether it is strictly part of $h[n]$. (the number a lies in the open unit disk) I mean I was pretty sure it ...

### Intuitive interpretation of Laplace transform

So I am getting to grasps with Fourier transforms. Intuitively now I definately understand what it does and will soon follow some classes on the mathematics (so the actual subject). But then I go on ...

### How does the $\mathcal Z$-transform's “region of convergence” work?

I'm a novice in DSP and I have few doubts regarding the $\mathcal Z$-transform and its region of convergence (ROC). I know what a $\mathcal Z$-transform is. But I'm having trouble with understanding ...

### Why is $\int^\infty _{0^-}\delta(t-nT)e^{-st}dt = e^{-nsT}$?
I'm currently in the process of going over the $\mathcal Z$-transform and more specifically its derivation. I understand and I am able to follow it up until the final step whereby involving the ...
