Symmetric Linear-Phase Filters

As stated at the beginning of this chapter, the impulse response of every causal, linear-phase, FIR filter is symmetric:

Assume that is odd. Then the filter

is a

By the shift theorem for

and the frequency response is

which is a

For frequencies at which is nonnegative, the phase delay and group delay of a linear-phase filter are simply half its length:
