When is an unfair price paid for the gain attained? A nonminimum-delay system is a system for which an unfair price has been paid for the log gain. Thus, there is no causal inverse system for a nonminimum-delay system. Some nonminimum-delay systems do not destroy information about the signal but only delay the information. For those systems, the original signal can be recovered, at least approximately, but at the cost of an overall time delay. Other nonminimum-delay systems destroy information about the signal so that the original signal cannot be recovered, even with an indefinitely long time delay.
