It should be stressed that this equivalence is only in terms of the measured quantities and not in terms of the processing that we apply to them.

This is because we define the Z-extension as in Eq. (3), in a way consistent with a definition of Z-transform as Σk ak zk . With the most conventional definition of Z-transform Σk ak z−k the zeros of the minimum phase waveform would be all inside the unit circle.

When a zero of Iaa (t) falls exactly on the unit circle, it must be a double zero because it coincides with its inverse conjugate. One such zero can be included in Z_aa.

The only relevant exception is that of the differential receiver, which we discuss later in the paper.

Some insight can be obtained by considering the example where a(t) is periodic with period T . Then the zeros of a(t − Td) are obtained by rotating the zeros of a(t) by an angle of 2πTd /T , and the pairs of zeros are perfectly distinguishable even when Td /T is a small fraction of unity (e.g. Td ~ 0.1T).

This implies that the lowest sampling rate of Bs = (Ba + Bb)/2 is achieved when Δν = (Ba − Bb)/2.

Obviously, the roles of a(t) and b(t) are symmetric, meaning that the two waveforms can also be obtained from the zeros of Iab (t) and Ibb (t) = |b(t)|2.

This procedure will rigorously reproduce the correct waveforms only as long as none of the zeros are common to both a(t) and b(t) (or to a(t) and b* (t)). Yet the probability of this happening with unrelated waveforms is too low to be of any practical relevance.

The reason that it is the inverse and not the direct transform has to do with opposite sign conventions between our definition of the Fourier transform (adopted from the optics literature) and the definition used in digital signal processing applications.

Notice that the inability to reconstruct the constant phase offset is not unique to the proposed reconstruction method. The constant phase is not recoverable also in standard homodyne and heterodyne receivers.
