The presence of 'inverse response' in the step response of a linear time-invariant system is closely associated with the presence of right-half plane zeros. Various links between the two are known: real positive zeros are sufficient to produce inverse response, and an odd number of positive real zeros is necessary and sufficient to give a particular form of inverse response. On the other hand, the presence of complex right-half plane zeros can result in inverse response, or not. The remaining question is whether the presence of right-half plane zeros is necessary for the presence of inverse response. This paper shows that it is not. This is demonstrated by the generation of a number of counter-examples, using an optimisation algorithm and a particular parametrisation of Hurwitz polynomials. We show that the result holds for a strengthened form of inverse response, which we call ρ-inverse response', and if the system poles are constrained to be real.
