## Signal Flow Graph

Figure 3.1 shows the *signal flow graph* (or *system
diagram*) for the class of digital filters we are considering (digital
comb filters). The symbol ``'' means a *delay* of
samples (always an integer here). This notation for a pure delay will
make more sense after we derive the filter *transfer function* in
§3.7.
