Consider x 1 ( n ) and x 2 ( n ) such that x 1 ( n ) = x 2 ( n ) , n n , then for the definition of the system we will also have y 1 ( n ) = y 2 ( n ) , n n , hence it is causal. (c) The system must be linear. Consider x ( n ) = ax 1 ( n ) + bx 2 ( n ) ... (d) The system is not time invariant. Consider x ( n ) = x ( n N ) , it follows y ( n ) = braceleftBigg x ( n ) n < + x ( n ) n = braceleftBigg x ( n N ) n < + x ( n N ) n On the other hand: y ( n N ) = braceleftBigg x ( n N ) n N < + x ( n N ) n N which is different from y . (2) (a) The system must be memoryless and the function f is exactly the ceiling function f ( x ) = x . (b) The system must be causal, because it is memoryless and memoryless causal . (c) The system cannot be linear. Consider x ( t ) = ax 1 ( t ) + bx 2 ( t ) , then F 2 ( x )( t ) = ax 1 ( t )+ bx 2 ( t ) which is different from a x 1 ( t ) + b x 2 ( t ) . (Assume for instance that a = b = 1 and that for a given time t , we have x 1 ( t ) = x 2 ( t ) = 1 2 , in this case ax 1 ( t ) + bx 2 ( t ) negationslash = a x 1 ( t ) + b x r ( t ) ).) (d) The system must be time invariant. (3) (a) The system cannot be memoryless. Consider N < t < N + 1 where N is a Natural number, y ( t ) = x ( N ) , hence it is not memoryless. (b) The system must be causal, because it is looking at current or past values of the input....
