Definition 9.1.1: A system is linear if each input λ 1 x 1 ( t )+ λ 2 x 2 ( t ) gives rise to output λ 1 y 1 ( t ) + λ 2 y 2 ( t ) where y 1 ( t ) and y 2 ( t ) are output of x 1 ( t ) and x 2 ( t ). Definition 9.1.2: A linear system is time-invariant if and only if a delay in the input x ( t- τ ) produces the same delay in the output y ( t- τ ). 9.2 Linear Systems in the time domain A time-invariant linear system may generally be written in the form y ( t ) = integraldisplay ∞-∞ h ( u ) x ( t- u ) (9.1) in continuous time and y t = ∞ summationdisplay k =-∞ h k x t- k (9.2) in discrete time. Definition 9.2.1: The function h ( u ) or h k is called the impulse response function. Often we assume that h ( u ) = 0 or h k = 0 for u < 0 or k < 0 respectively. 9.2.1 Some examples The impulse response of a moving average filter y t = ( x t- 1 + x t + x t +1 ) / 3...
