Quote of the Week The purpose of models is not to fit the data but to sharpen the questions. Samuel Karlin, 11th R.A. Fisher Memorial Lecture, 1983. PROBLEM 1.1: In Pad es method, we model a signal x ( n ) as the unit sample response of a filter that has a system function of the form H ( z ) = B q ( z ) A p ( z ) and the filter coefficients a p ( k ) and b q ( k ) are found so that x ( n ) = h ( n ) for n = 0 , 1 ,...,p + q . In this problem, we consider some generalizations of Pad es method. (a) One way to generalize the approach of Pad e is to consider matching x ( n ) to the unit sample response h ( n ) over other intervals. For example, instead of forcing x ( n ) = h ( n ) for n [0 ,p + q ], suppose we would like to find values for a p ( k ) and b k ( q ) so that x ( n ) = h ( n ) for n = n 1 ,n 1 + 1 ,...,n 1 + p + q , i.e. over an interval of length p + q + 1 that begins at n = n 1 rather than n = 0. Is this possible? If so, derive the equations that must be solved and work an example by defining a signal and then finding the model. If it is not possible, explain whyan example by defining a signal and then finding the model....
