Review Last time, we saw how a linear, time-invariant (LTI) system can be characterized by its unit-sample/impulse response. DT: y [ n ] = ( x h )[ n ] = k = x [ k ] h [ n k ] CT: y ( t ) = ( x h )( t ) = x ( ) h ( t ) d Characterizing a system by its unit-sample/impulse response is es- pecially insightful for some systems. Microscope Blurring can be represented by convolving the image with the optical point-spread-function (3D impulse response). target image = Blurring is inversely related to the diameter of the lens. Hubble Space Telescope Hubble images before and after upgrading the optics. before after http://hubblesite.org Frequency Response Today we will investigate a different way to characterize a system: the frequency response . Many systems are naturally described by their responses to sinusoids.
