### How can I find the Transfer Function in Z-domain?

This is my signal; $y[n]=x[n]+0.8x[n-0.2]$ When I take Z-transform I get; $Y[z]=X[z]+0.8z^\frac{-1}{5}X[z])$ Then I found the Transfer function as; $H[z]=\frac{Y[z]}{X[z]}$ $H[z]=1+0.8z^\frac{-1}{5}$ ...

### How does the number of cycles for averaging in a lock-in amplifier relate to low-pass filtering and where do I set it?

Please forgive me if I ask too many questions at once or I am too much of a rookie. I want to understand the working-principle of lock-in amplifiers (LIAs). I understood the calculation that yields ...

### How can I filter out a signal while extracting only the desired one?

I know that my input signal contains a main sinusoidal signal, and I know its frequency but not its amplitude. Until now, I have been successfully using the least-squares method to generate a ...
