The Laplace and Fourier Transform.

The Laplace and Fourier Transform.

1A) Discuss what is meant by poles and zeros of a transfer function.

1B) How does the determination of each help in understanding the response of a circuit?

Some key points to think about when discussing this topic are:

The poles and zeros of transfer functions allow for a determination of the relative stability circuits. Stability refers to whether the output of a circuit can be easily controlled with predictable limits for a given range of inputs. Thus, a stable circuit has a bounded output for bounded inputs.

Differences between Fourier and Laplace Transform
