[SciPy-User] python and filter design: calculating optimal "S" transform

this is an airy question.

does anybody have some code or ideas on how to calculate the optimal "S"
transform of user specified order (wanting the coefficients)  for a
published filter response curve, ie.

f(s) = (b1*S^2 + b2*S) / (a1*S^2 + a2*S + a3)

I am parameterizing the response of a linear device (Out = Response*In). I
have the measured frequency response for the device (amplitude, phase) for a
range of frequencies.

I wish to model that measured response via a ratio of polynomials in the
s-domain (or Laplace domain), where I define the polynomial orders (for
numerator and denominator).

Something like the "Yule-Walker" method is what I'm after except, to my
knowledge, Yule-Walker approach is strictly for responses involving a
denominator polynomial (i.e. strictly autoregressive) only. I need some
thing to discover both numerator and denominator coefficients.
