A graphical method provides, without templates and without factoring, a means for rapidly estimating log-amplitude versus log-frequency response curves from transfer functions in their unfactored polynomial form. The technique can also be used to design or synthesize transfer functions which will produce a specified frequency response characteristic. Included is a graphical stability criterion for third and fourth-order systems which provides a quick check on system stability during the course of design or of analysis of the system response.
