# scipy.signal.freqz¶

scipy.signal.freqz(b, a=1, worN=None, whole=0, plot=None)[source]

Compute the frequency response of a digital filter.

Given the numerator b and denominator a of a digital filter, compute its frequency response:

```          jw               -jw            -jmw
jw  B(e)    b[0] + b[1]e + .... + b[m]e
H(e) = ---- = ------------------------------------
jw               -jw            -jnw
A(e)    a[0] + a[1]e + .... + a[n]e```
Parameters : b : ndarray numerator of a linear filter a : ndarray denominator of a linear filter worN : {None, int, array_like}, optional If None (default), then compute at 512 frequencies equally spaced around the unit circle. If a single integer, then compute at that many frequencies. If an array_like, compute the response at the frequencies given (in radians/sample). whole : bool, optional Normally, frequencies are computed from 0 to the Nyquist frequency, pi radians/sample (upper-half of unit-circle). If whole is True, compute frequencies from 0 to 2*pi radians/sample. plot : callable A callable that takes two arguments. If given, the return parameters w and h are passed to plot. Useful for plotting the frequency response inside freqz. w : ndarray The normalized frequencies at which h was computed, in radians/sample. h : ndarray The frequency response.

Notes

Using Matplotlib’s “plot” function as the callable for plot produces unexpected results, this plots the real part of the complex transfer function, not the magnitude.

Examples

```>>> from scipy import signal
>>> b = signal.firwin(80, 0.5, window=('kaiser', 8))
>>> w, h = signal.freqz(b)
```
```>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> fig = plt.figure()
>>> plt.title('Digital filter frequency response')
>>> ax1 = fig.add_subplot(111)
```
```>>> plt.semilogy(w, np.abs(h), 'b')
>>> plt.ylabel('Amplitude (dB)', color='b')
```
```>>> ax2 = ax1.twinx()
>>> angles = np.unwrap(np.angle(h))
>>> plt.plot(w, angles, 'g')
>>> plt.ylabel('Angle (radians)', color='g')
>>> plt.grid()
>>> plt.axis('tight')
>>> plt.show()
```
