This chapter introduces and reviews the important properties of the z-transform and shows how this transform is used to solve difference equations. From this development we obtain the system function and the discrete-time convolution, both useful for design, analysis, and synthesis. Three design methods are discussed - two for recursive filters and one for nonrecursive filters. This chapter then examines sources of error in filter responses, introduces the fast Fourier transform, and discusses its application to digital filtering.
