Please give your solution in the allocated space. If more space is needed, use the back of the page. All problems carry equal weight. 1. A system, S , is defined by the following equation relating the input x ( t ) to the output y ( t ): y ( t ) = S [ x ( t )] = sin(2 t ) x ( t- 1) . Is the system: (a) Causal? (b) Memoryless? (c) Invertible? (d) Stable? (e) Linear? (f) Time-invariant? Explain your answers briefly (a yes or no answer will not suffice). Solution (a) The system is causal because the output depends only on past inputs; the output at time t depends only on the past input at time t- 1. (b) The system is not memoryless because the output at time t is a function of the input at another time besides t . (c) The system is not invertible since at times mπ for m and integer the output is 0 and there is no way to determine the input from it. (d) Assume | x ( t ) | ≤ A < ∞ . Then | y ( t ) | = | sin(2 t ) x ( t- 1) | = | sin(2 t ) || x ( t- 1) | ≤ A | sin(2 t ) | ≤ A < ∞ . Thus, the system is stable. (e) Let y 1 ( t ) = S [ x 1 ( t )] = sin(2 t ) x 1 ( t- 1) and y 2 ( t ) = S [ x 2 ( t )] = sin(2 t ) x 2 ( t- 1). Now let the input be c 1 x 1 ( t ) + c 2 x 2 ( t ). Then the output is sin(2 t )[ c 1 x 1 ( t- 1)+ c 2 x 2 ( t- 1)] = c 1 sin(2 t ) x 1 ( t- 1)+ c 2 sin(2 t ) x 2 ( t- 1) = c 1 y 1 ( t )+...
