Poles and Transmission Zeros

•* McMillan* degree of *G*(*s*) = å deg(bi(*s*)) where deg(bi(*s*)) denotes
the degree of the polynomial bi(*s*).

• McMillan degree of *G*(*s*) = the dimension of a minimal realization of *G*(*s*).

• Poles of *G(s)* = roots of bi(*s*)

• **transmission zeros** of *G(s)* = the roots of ai(*s*)
