Presented by Professor Fred Harris - A multirate filter has embedded within its structure a mechanism to implement one or more sample rate changes as part of its signal processing task.

One might ask why one would want to change the sample rate? It was once suggested to me that  "We change sample rate because we didn’t do it right the first time ".  Cute, but not true! We change sample rate to reduce the cost or improve the performance of a signal processing task. One obvious driver for changing sample rate is the Nyquist criterion that directs us to select a sample rate that exceeds the signal’s two sided bandwidth.
