The increasingly stringent demands of high-speed data transmission, television, and telephone networks require a general delay approximation algorithm to cope with problems of intersymbol dependencies, color transition smear, loss of articulation, and other undesirable phenomena attributable to delay distortion. To help in evolving a satisfactory method of approximating arbitrary envelope delays, this introductory paper elucidates fundamental relationships between system functions and envelope delay, examines several classical results, and presents new analytical expressions connecting envelope delay to the transfer function of a realizable network. 30 pp. Ref.
