In this paper a new method to realize rational generalized transfer functions of linear shift-variant digital filters through state feedback is presented. In some practical applications the required characteristics of the filter change slowly. Under these circumstances, the proposed method is very effective and the resulting filter structure is simple. A numerical, example is provided to show the performance of the method.
