MINIMUM PHASE SYSTEMS
A causal, rational system is stable if all its poles are inside the unit
circle.
Such a system is called called
minimum phase
if, in
addition, all its
zeros
are inside the unit circle.
Equivalently it has
no zeros outside the unit circle, including no zeros at
∞
.
We now
show that any causal, stable, real rational system,

factored as
