{{#category_index:M|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.
