Some practice with geometric sums and complex exponentials (5 points each) Well make much use of formulas for the sum of a geometric series, especially in combination with complex exponentials. (a) If w is a real or complex number, w 6 = 1, and p and q are any integers, show that q X n = p w n = w p- w q +1 1- w . (Of course if w = 1 then the sum is q n = p 1 = q + 1- p .) Discuss the cases when p =- or q = . What about p =- and q = + ? (b) Find the sum N- 1 X n =0 e 2 in/N and explain your answer geometrically. (c) Derive the formula N X k =- N e 2 ikt = sin(2 t ( N + 1 / 2)) sin( t ) 2. Some practice combining simple signals. (5 points each) The triangle function with a parameter a > 0 is a ( t ) = ( t/a ) = ( 1- 1 a | t | , | t | a , | t | > a The graph is ! a a 1 1 The parameter a specifies the width, namely 2 a . Alternately, a determines the slopes of the sides: the left side has slope 1 /a and the right side has slope- 1 /a . We can modify a by scaling the height and shifting horizontally, forming b a ( t- c ). The slopes of the sides of the scaled function are then b/a . The graph is: c ! a c c+a b bLa(t ! c) Express each of the following as a sum of two shifted, scaled triangle functions b 1 a 1 ( t- c 1 )+ b 2 a 2 ( t- c 2 ). Think of the sum as left-triangle plus a right-triangle (right meaning to the)....
