Just a quick question about some notation used in my book.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The proper form of the transfer function used in my book is as follows:

[tex] \bar H(j\omega) = \frac{K_0(j\omega)^{\pm N} (1+j\omega\tau_1)(1+2\zeta_3(j\omega\tau_3)+(j\omega\tau_3)^2)\cdot\cdot\cdot }{(1+j\omega \tau_a)(1+2\zeta_b(j \omega \tau_b)+(j \omega \tau_b)^2 )\cdot \cdot \cdot}[/tex]

I'm kinda just being picky here, but I would like to understand the convention that they used.

Why the jump from [itex] \tau_1 [/itex] to [itex] \tau_3 [/itex], the choice of starting with [itex] \zeta_3 [/itex] in the numerator. Just curious if someone could shed some light on this.

Thank you
