Zero Phase Signals

A zero-phase signal is thus a linear-phase signal for which the phase-slope $ \Delta$ is zero. As mentioned above (in §7.4.3), it would be more precise to say ``0-or-$ \pi $ -phase signal'' instead of ``zero-phase signal''. Another better term is ``zero-centered signal'', since every real (even) spectrum corresponds to an even (real) signal. Of course, a zero-centered symmetric signal is simply an even signal, by definition. Thus, a ``zero-phase signal'' is more precisely termed an ``even signal''.
