Minimum-Phase Filter DesignAbove, we used the Hilbert transform to find the imaginary part of an analytic signal from its real part. A closely related application of the Hilbert transform is constructing a minimum phase  frequency response from an amplitude response.
Let denote a desired complex, minimum-phase frequency response in the digital domain ( plane):
and suppose we have only the amplitude response
Then the phase response can be computed as the Hilbert transform of . This can be seen by inspecting the log frequency response:
If is computed from by the Hilbert transform, then is an ``analytic signal'' in the frequency domain. Therefore, it has no ``negative times,'' i.e., it is causal. The time domain signal corresponding to a log spectrum is called the cepstrum . It is reviewed in the next section that a frequency response is minimum phase if and only if the corresponding cepstrum is causal [198, Ch. 10], [263, Ch. 11].
