Lets suppose i am having one transfer function as
H(z)= 1-2z/(1+3z)
and the other is
G(z) = 1-2z(-1)/ [1+3z(-1)] //Now inverse is used
If i want to take the transfer fucntion in matlab for further pole zero map, how i will tell matlab that it is z in my TF or z(-1)

Is that really z multiplied by negative one? Or is it z raised to the power of negative 1, z^(-1), which is 1/z ?

It is z raise to power -1
yes 1/z...
H(z) contaiins all z
G(z) contains all z(inverse power)

You can take your H(z) and divide by z. So you will have: z^(-1)-2 / z^(-1)+3. Now you can create two vectors containing zeros and poles:
B=[-2 1];
A=[3 1];
zplane(B,A)
If you have function with (all) negative powers, than the last coefficient is for the most negative power and the first coeff is a constant. In case of all positive coeff. you just inverse the order (constant is last).

Is there any way i can directly use H(z) for calculations

Not without the symbolic toolbox.

I dont really understand what you are trying to do. Please, be more specific.

I just want to ask that some times we are having transfer function which is expressed in z and some times it is expressed in z(inverse) format
how to handle both I am sure both cannot be handled by one command of matlab like tf is used with z(inverse)
