The z-transform may be thought of as , where this allows one to relate it to the Fourier transform. The z-transform technique is an easy way of converting from the time domain into a form which can be treated as in the frequency domain. Convolution can be accomplished by merely multiplying the z-transforms of the waveforms being convolved, and the inverse of a filter can be found by finding the reciprocal of the filter's z-transform. The z-transform polynomial can be factored and expressed as the product of doublets of the form:
