Signal Flow Graph

One possible *signal flow graph* (or *system diagram*)
for Eq. (5.1) is given in
Fig.5.1a for the case of and .
Hopefully, it is easy to see how this diagram represents the
difference equation (a box labeled ``'' denotes a one-sample
delay in time). The diagram remains true if it is converted to the
*frequency domain* by replacing all time-domain signals by their
respective *z* transforms (or Fourier transforms); that is, we may replace
by and by . transforms and their usage
will be discussed in Chapter 6.
