Unformatted text preview: LinearConvolution The linearconvolution oftwosequences x n and y n isdefinedby ( x * y ) n : = m =- x m y n- m . Ifoneofthesequences,say x m ,hasfiniteduration,say x m = 0for m < M 1 and m > M 2 , then ( x * y ) n : = M 2 m = M 1 x m y n- m . Letusfurthersupposethatweinterestedintheconvolutiononlyfor N 1 n N 2 ,sayfor plottingpurposes.Thenincomputingtheconvolution,thevaluesofthesubscriptof y ,that is, n- m ,rangefrom N 1- M 2 to N 2- M 1 .Thepointhereisthattocompute ( x * y ) n for n = N 1 ,..., N 2 requiresonlythevalues x M 1 ,..., x M 2 and y N 1- M 2 ,..., y N 2- M 1 .Forexample, if N 1 = M 1 = 0,thenweneed y- M 2 ,..., y N 2 .
