the vectors of numerator and denominator coefficients of the allpass
mapping filter. The prototype lowpass filter is given with a numerator
B and a denominator specified by
This transformation effectively places one feature of an original
filter, located at frequency -Wo, at the required
target frequency location, Wt1, and the second
feature, originally at
at the new location, Wt2. Choice of the feature
subject to the lowpass to bandstop transformation is not restricted
only to the cutoff frequency of an original lowpass filter. In general
it is possible to select any feature; e.g., the stopband edge, the
DC, the deep minimum in the stopband, or other ones. It is assumed
that Wt2 is greater than Wt1.
Frequencies must be normalized to be between 0 and 1, with 1 corresponding
to half the sample rate.
This transformation implements the "Nyquist Mobility," which means that the DC feature stays at DC, but the Nyquist feature moves to a location dependent on the selection of Wo and Wts.
Relative positions of other features of an original filter change in the target filter. This means that it is possible to select two features of an original filter, F1 and F2, with F1 preceding F2. After the transformation feature F2 will precede F1 in the target filter. However, the distance between F1 and F2 will not be the same before and after the transformation.

Design a prototype real IIR lowpass elliptic filter with a gain of about –3 dB at 0.5π rad/sample.
[b,a] = ellip(3,0.1,30,0.409);
Create a bandstop filter by placing the cutoff frequencies of the prototype filter at 0.25π and 0.75π.
[num,den] = iirlp2bs(b,a,0.5,[0.25 0.75]);
Compare the magnitude responses of the filters using FVTool.
