Abstract

In this chapter we shall again look in more detail at the recurrence (3.6). Chapter 5 exhausted the interpretation of (3.6) in terms of CFs. Now we shall interpret (3.6) as a sequence of Moebius transforms for series. In this way we shall obtain an nonhomogeneous version of algorithm 2 and of an inverse for algorithm 1. In the special case that F(z) for z = exp(iθ) represents the Fourier expansion of a positive function, the reformulation of algorithm 2 will turn out to be the algorithm as originally formulated by Schur. The inverse of algorithm 1 as we shall formulate it, becomes the classical Schur-Cohn test to check if the zeros of a polynomial are inside the unit disc. These facts will be explained in chapter 17.
