Complex Example

To illustrate an example involving complex poles, consider the filter

$\displaystyle H(z) \eqsp \frac{g}{1+z^{-2}},
$

where $ g$ can be any real or complex value. (When $ g$ is real, the filter as a whole is real also.) The poles are then $ p_1=j$ and $ p_2=-j$ (or vice versa), and the factored form can be written as

$\displaystyle H(z) \eqsp \frac{g}{(1-jz^{-1})(1+jz^{-1})}.
$

Using Eq.$ \,$(6.8), the residues are found to be

\begin{eqnarray*}
r_1 &=& \left.(1-jz^{-1})H(z)\right\vert _{z=j}
\eqsp \left.\...
...eft.\frac{g}{1-jz^{-1}}\right\vert _{z=-j}
\eqsp \frac{g}{2}\,.
\end{eqnarray*}

Thus,

$\displaystyle H(z) \eqsp \frac{g/2}{1-jz^{-1}} + \frac{g/2}{1+jz^{-1}}.
$

A more elaborate example of a partial fraction expansion into complex one-pole sections is given in §3.12.1.
