NYQUIST CRITERION

One governing the stability of an amplifier or system incorporating feedback. It demands that the Nyquist diagram shall not enclose the point X= -1, Y=0, where n//i=X+jY.

NYQUIST DIAGRAM

For a feedback amplifier or system, a plot in rectangular co-ordinates of the factor p//i for frequencies from zero dc to infinity, where /i is the gain without feedback and ft is the fraction of the output voltage superimposed by the feedback loop onto the amplifier input.

NYQUIST LIMIT

Maximum rate of transmitting pulses through a system. If B is the effective bandwidth in Hz, then 2B is the maximum number of code elements per second bauds which can be received with certainty. ^ B is known as the Nyquist interval. The Nyquist rate effects the minimum sampling rate allowable for accurate recon
