Signals in Time Domain

A signal is a set of data or information, which can be


represented as a function of time: s (t )
Deterministic signal is a signal whose physical description
is known completely, either in a mathematical form or a graphical
form.

Signal Energy: Es | s (t ) |2 dt

Signal Power: 1 T /2
Ps lim | s (t ) |2 dt

Fourier Transform

Given a time domain signal s(t), its Fourier transform is defined as follows.

Fourier transform: S( f ) s t e j 2 ft dt

The time domain signal s(t) can be expressed by S(f) using an inverse transform.

Linear Time Invariant (LTI) System

Linear system: in the time domain, a linear system is described in


terms of its impulse response (the response of the system to a
unit impulse (t)).

Linear Time Invariant (LTI) system: the shape of the impulse


response is the same no matter when the unit impulse (t) is
applied to the system.
