% Oustaloup-Recursive-Approximation for fractional order differentiator

% Input variables:
% r: the fractional order as in s^r, r is a real number
% N: order of the finite TF approximation for both (num/den)
% (Note: 2N+1 recursive z-p pairs)
% w_L: low frequency limit of the range of the frequency of interest
% w_H: upper freq. limit of the range of the frequency of interest
% Output:
% sys_foc: continuous time transfer function system object (TF)
