minimum phase

A two-term wavelet [a,b] is minimum phase if |a|>|b|. Any wavelet is minimum phase if the two-term wavelets, into which its z-transform can be factored, are each maximum phase. Same as minimum delay. Much seismic processing assumes minimum-phase properties. See phase characteristics and Figure P-1. Opposite of maximum phase.
