Matched Z-transform method
The matched Z-transform method, also called the pole–zero mapping or pole–zero matching method, and abbreviated MPZ or MZT, is a technique for converting a continuous-time filter design to a discrete-time filter (digital filter) design.
is transformed into the digital transfer function
The gain must be adjusted to normalize the desired gain, typically set to match the analog filter's gain at DC by setting and and solving for .
This transform doesn't preserve time- or frequency-domain response (though it does preserve stability and minimum phase), and so is not widely used. More common methods include the bilinear transform and impulse invariance methods. MZT does provide less high frequency response error than the BLT, however, making it easier to correct by adding additional zeros, which is called the MZTi (for "improved").
A specific application of the matched Z-transform method in the digital control field, is with the Ackermann's formula, which changes the poles of the controllable system; in general from an unstable (or nearby) location to a stable location.

Because physical systems often have more poles than zeros, it is useful to arbitrarily add zeros at z = -1.

The expediency of artificially adding zeros at z = —1 to the digital system has been suggested ... but this ad hoc technique is at best only a stopgap measure. ... In general, use of impulse invariant or bilinear transformation is to be preferred over the matched z transformation.

although perfectly usable filters can be designed in this way, no special time- or frequency-domain properties are preserved by this transformation, and it is not widely used.
