  Group Delay - Microwave Encyclopedia - Microwaves101.com
Group delay in microwave filters is another great topic, you can find more info here (thanks, Cheryl!) Filters end up contributing a lot of delay to microwave circuits, even though they are often physically very compact.
Group delay consistency (unit-to-unit, over temperature, over frequency, over attenuation state) is extremely important in receivers such as monopulse, where amplitude and phase tracking is required to achieve good null depths.
Group delay flatness can be an issue in waveguide, especially near the lower cutoff frequency.

 Group delay
The rate of change of the total phase shift with respect to angular frequency, d θ/d ω, through a device or transmission medium, where θ is the total phase shift, and ω is the angular frequency equal to 2πf, where f is the frequency.
Note: For optical fiber dispersion measurement purposes, the quantity of interest is group delay per unit length, which is the reciprocal of the group velocity of a particular mode.
The measured group delay of a signal through an optical fiber exhibits a wavelength dependence due to the various dispersion mechanisms present in the fiber.

Group delay means the time in milliseconds (usually) the signal at that frequency is delayed versus the rest of the frequency spectrum.
Group Delay is derived from the slope of the phase response in the frequency domain.
He “normalizes” Group Delay into cycles of delay calculated by dividing the group delay by the period of the frequency at each point (or the frequency times the number of seconds of delay); he feels that this may be a more accurate comparator.

 Group Delay Measurements - Microwave Encyclopedia - Microwaves101.com
Group delay is the negative-slope of the transmission phase angle with respect to frequency.
One interesting plot is the S21 phase angle, after it is "unwound." The slope of this plot is the group delay.
You can generally see were the group delay will not be flat, by any regions of non-linearity on the plot.

When it all ended, DeLay's private charity, along with the consulting firm that employed DeLay's wife and the Missouri campaign of Blunt's son, Matt, who now is the state's governor, all ended up with a piece of the pie, according to campaign documents reviewed by The Associated Press.
None of the hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations DeLay collected for the 2000 convention were ever disclosed to federal regulators because the type of group DeLay used wasn't governed by federal law at the time.
DeLay worked at the firm when he made the payments, and that she had nothing to do with Blunt's group.

 PSW Sound Reinforcement Forums: LAB Subwoofer => Subs and minimal Group Delay, Decay time
Sealed Boxes significantly less group delay, but If you use a Parametric eq, some sort of Linkwitz Transform, or Dual integrator EQ you add more group delay which can be the same or worse than a vented box.
Group delay has two meanings, in communications it can mean the way different groups of frequencies are delayed with respect to each other AND it can define the rate of change of a systems delay, the latter view being used in audio.
Group Delay is not the same as Time Delay, Group Delay is the derivative of phase thus shows the rate of change in phase, that is it shows the rate the Time Delay is changing.

 Group delay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is often desirable for the group delay to be constant across all frequencies; otherwise there is temporal smearing of the signal.
The degree of nonlinearity of the phase indicates the deviation of the group delay from a constant.
It is therefore important to know the threshold of audibility of group delay with respect to frequency, especially if the audio chain is supposed to provide a high fidelity reproduction.

 Fractional Delay, and Dispersion
The string or bore length is related to the frequency by the velocity of the medium; in contrast, the delay line length is related to the frequency by the sampling period.
A fractional delay filter is one which implements a delay that is not an integer multiple of the sampling period.
The phase and group delays are equally valid means of specifying the phase response of a system--as good as the typical specification of phase versus frequency.

 Group Delay And Amplitude Characteristics from Filtronetics, Inc.
The group delay of the Bessel is flat in the passband; whereas the Gaussian group delay is “bullet” shaped.
The group delays of the Butterworth and Chebychev have more variation and have a somewhat inverse shape in the Passband relative to the Gaussian.
The Bessel and Gaussian filters are also more sensitive to load variations which may seriously affect the good group delay or phase shift response of these filters.

 Delay Filters by Nuhertz Technologies
The frequency response magnitude of an ideal transport delay filter is unity for all frequencies, and the frequency response group delay is equal to the duration of the transport delay for all frequencies.
It is frequently necessary to account for transport delay in controls applications, and it is occasionally useful to delay a signal for timing purposes.
With an equiripple period of 2.0, the group delay is designed to be accurate for frequencies up to (N-1) /(T*PI) Hz where N is the order of the filter, and T is the design transport delay.

Both groupsDeLay's and Blunt's — were simultaneously paying Ellis, the longtime DeLay fundraiser who was indicted along with his boss in Texas in the alleged money laundering scheme.
The DeLay group began transferring money to Blunt's group in two checks totaling $150,000 in the spring of 2000, well before Republicans actually met in Philadelphia for the convention.
Eight days later, the Blunt group made a $10,000 donation to DeLay's private charity for children on April 7, 2000, and began the first of several payments totaling $40,000 to a northern Virginia-based political consulting firm formed by DeLay's former chief of staff, Ed Buckham.

To reduce the number of parameters that have to be estimated and to achieve stability in the tails of the delay distributions, an assumption is made that all cancer cases will be reported within 24 years of diagnosis.
The delay distributions were modeled as a function of covariates using a discrete-time proportional hazards model.
For each cancer site, a delay distribution was calculated for all races combined and a separate delay distribution was calculated for whites and fls.

 Phase Delay and Group Delay
Since LTI filter analysis is based on sinusoids without beginning or end, one cannot in principle distinguish between ``true'' phase delay and a phase delay with discarded sinusoidal periods.
For linear phase responses, the group delay and the phase delay are identical, and each may be interpreted as time delay.
At this point, it is evident that the group delay at the carrier frequency gives the slope of the linear phase of the translated spectrum.

 Noncausality and the Group Delay Parameter (Communications Toolbox)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
This delay, known as the filter's group delay, is the time between the filter's initial response and its peak response.
This delay is set so that the impulse response before time zero is negligible and can safely be ignored by the function.
Comparing filtered with unfiltered data might be easier if you delay the unfiltered signal by the filter's group delay.

 Klipsch Forums - So what is "Group Delay" anyway?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
In a perfect world there would be no group delay and full range,point source would be the summum of perfection.In the real world the engineers have to work to minimize group delay or at least keep it in check,if I may say.
One thing I do know is that group delay does amount to some level of "time delay" in the sense that the impulse of the wave arrives later (versus the arrival time of an impulse with less group delay).
Generally speaking, it is desirable for the group delay (rate of change of phase) to be constant across all frequencies; otherwise there is temporal smearing of the signal.

 Rane Professional Audio Reference (G)
groups (aka subgroup or submix) A combination of two or more signal channels gathered together and treated as a set that can be varied in overall level from a single control or set of controls.
group delay Same as envelope delay [technically the time interval required for the crest of a group of waves to travel through a 2-port network -IEEE.] The rate of change of phase shift with respect to frequency.
Note that pure signal delay causes a phase shift proportional to frequency, and is said to be "linear phase," or "phase linear." In acoustics, such a system is commonly referred to as a "minimum phase" system.
