Is...In a long-distance telephone communication, an echo is sometimes encountered due to the transmitted signal being reflected at the receiver, sent back down the line, reflected again at the transmitter, and returned to the receiver. The impulse response for a system that modles this effect is shown in figure, where we have assumed tat only one echo is received. The parameter \(T\) corresponds to the one-way travel time along the communication channel, and the parameter \(\alpha\) represents the attenuation in amplitude between transmitter and receiver.

How can I determine a transfer function from this?

$\displaystyle h(t) = \alpha\ \delta(t - T) + \alpha^{3}\ \delta (t - 3\ T)\ (1)$

... so that...

$\displaystyle H(s) = \alpha\ e^{- s\ T} + \alpha^{3}\ e^{- 3\ s\ T}\ (2)$

We know that exponential are never zero. How can we represent \(H\) in terms of zeros and poles? The only time I see that \(H\) can be zero is if \(\alpha = 0, \pm i\) but is that right?Is...

The answer is very simple: in this case H(s) doesn't have neither zeros neither poles but only 'pure delays'...We know that exponential are never zero. How can we represent \(H\) in terms of zeros and poles? The only time I see that \(H\) can be zero is if \(\alpha = 0, \pm i\) but is that right?
