#### Separating the Transfer Function Numerator and Denominator

From Eq.(6.5) we have that the transfer function of a recursive filter is a ratio of polynomials in :

where

By elementary properties of complex numbers, we have

These relations can be used to simplify calculations by hand, allowing the numerator and denominator of the transfer function to be handled separately.
