Chapter 8

z-Transform for Discrete-Time Signals and Systems

Chapter Objectives

  • Learn the z-transform as a more generalized version of the discrete-time Fourier transform (DTFT) studied in Chapter 5.
  • Understand the convergence characteristics of the z-transform and the concept of region of convergence.
  • Explore the properties of the z-transform.
  • Understand the use of the z-transform for modeling DTLTI systems. Learn the z-domain system function and its use for solving signal-system interaction problems.
  • Learn techniques for obtaining block diagrams for DTLTI systems based on the z-domain system function.
  • Learn the use of the unilateral z-transform for solving difference equations with specified initial conditions.
