function [H] = multiply_polynomial_matrices(varargin)
%Multiplies polynomial matrices, i.e., H[z]=H_1[z]*...*H_N[z], where H_i[z] is in cell array format (varargin) similarly to
%the output H. For example, if H[z]=H_0+H_1*z^{-1}+...+H_N*z^{-N} then H={H_0,H_1,...H_N}.
%Assumption: inputs can be multiplied (=sizes are verified).
