In many cases the zeros are at a very high frequency and do not contribute to the response at the frequencies of interest. 2. If one dominant pole exists: The pole is two octaves (factor of 4) smaller than all other poles and zeros then we have: ( ) ( ) Pn P P Zn Z Z H s s s s s s s F + + + + + + = 1 1 1 1 1 1 ) ( 2 1 2 1 L L 1 1 1 ) ( P H s s F +
