I have a rather nasty Z-Transform of a transfer function that looks like: a0 + a1*z^-1 + a2*z^-2 H(z) = ---------------------- b0 + b1*z^-1 + b2*z^-2 where a0, a1, a2, b0, b1 and b2 are sums/products of a number of paramters. I have access the the Symbolic Toolbox (uses the Maple kernal) in Matlab (reasonable experience) and Mathematica (essentially zero experience). Is there an easy way to bring this back into the time domain in either of these packages? Alternately, if I could just do a symbolic long division, I would get terms in the form: a0 + a1*z^-1 + a2*z^-2 + a3*z^-3 + ... which are super-simple to bring into the time-domain. But I can't seem to get Matlab to do this (I haven't tried Mathematica, yet). ANY help will be greatly appreciated. ray ----- Ray DeGennaro degennar at bmsrs.usc.edu -----
